Visit the Connections Workshops to gain a deeper understanding of the sensory experience of a child with autism. Act for Autism’s 30 minute workshops will provide powerful exercises to help you connect, calm and communicate with those you care, support or teach. Experience what reciprocity feels like, practice some breathing techniques and try the ‘crazy things we say and don’t mean’ quiz. You will learn simple strategies that really make a difference.
Act for Autism is a social enterprise, not for profit organisation set up by two passionate professionals and parents who have worked and lived with autistic individuals for over 20 years. Their joint experience as counsellors, actors, drama teachers, presenters and mothers gives them a breadth of experience which they use to help teachers, parents and other professionals.
Their work to date has included: County wide delivery of their connections workshop for parents on behalf of Warwickshire County Council, Inset training for mainstream independent schools, individual mentoring and counselling, school advocacy, specialist drama projects and most recently a film project feature by BBC news entitled AUTISM VOICES to be premiered in July 2018.
Act for Autism’s vision is for all schools nationally to have participated in a Connections Workshop so that autism is better understood. They aim to empower autistic individuals to have the confidence to voice their needs, and their wants, and have them both met.
Workshops will be running on Friday and Saturday at: 11.00, 12.00, 14.00, and 15.00.
