Personal Coping Skills & Strategies

For many people on the autism spectrum, anxiety can be a barrier to learning and to enjoying every day experiences. This seminar will support parents, carers and professionals to understand the issues relating to anxiety and anxiety management.

We will provide an overview that will help give a context for understanding how and why anxiety affects people on the spectrum.  Supportive strategies and approaches will be explored by presenting real life case studies of individuals across the spectrum and age range.

Thinking about Independence

Supporting individuals with autism to acquire and develop skills for independent living can be a challenge for many parents and carers of people on the spectrum. This seminar will explore some of the reasons why learning, retaining and using daily living skills can, for some, be very problematic.

Scottish Autism staff will combine sound autism knowledge and their direct experience to provide delegates with examples of practical strategies that enable both children and adults to develop these vital skills that many of us take for granted.

Relationships & Sexual Health

Relationships of all kinds can be fraught with complexity for people on the spectrum. Friendships, working and intimate relationships all demand an understanding of self as well as the potential impact you may have on another person.

In this seminar, we will explore this most fundamental but highly challenging aspect of human development. We will present a variety of approaches and case studies which consider the key issues for individuals across the spectrum and at various ages and stages of development. Our aim is to provide a supportive environment where together we can explore and discuss this sensitive topic.
