Autism: Training, Links and Support (ATLAS)
ATLAS (Autism: Training, Links and Support)
ATLAS is a series of five information sessions for parents/carers of children with autism delivered via Zoom. We will help you to understand more about autism and how it may influence your child's abilities, learning and the way they behave. You also will meet professionals who specialise in supporting autistic children and their families, as well as parents of older autistic children. There will be an optional coffee morning after the course. Together we went to work with you to help your children to learn, develop and thrive.
ATLAS is a series of 5 information sessions about autism:
- Session 1 - Understanding Autism
An introduction to the areas of difference experienced by children with autism. Delivered by the Clinical Lead for Autism in the Speech and Language Therapy Team.
- Session 2 – Understanding Communication
A session where we explore the different ways that autistic children communicate and why this can be challenging.
- Session 3 - Understanding Sensory Processing
This session will help you to understand how the world around us can help your child to learn and to thrive. We will consider the impact of finding the sensory world overwhelming, and how you might understand these experiences better.
- Session 4 - Understanding Information Processing
An Education Psychologist and an Occupational Therapist will help you to understand how autistic children process information in order to make sense of the world around them.
- Session 5 - Understanding Local Resources
A parent of a child with autism will help you to understand what it is like to be an autism parent, and to introduce you to some the the many local groups and resources available to families with autistic children.
