Our sessions give young people the opportunity to develop the skills they need to face life with confidence.
Children on the Autism Spectrum can find everyday interactions challenging. We have developed this two day summer course to address many of these challenges and provide insights and strategies for moving forward.
There will be two different courses – one aimed at 9 – 11 year olds and another for those of 12 – 15 years (each child will need to attend both days of the course).
Communication and conversation
We will address different forms of communication (verbal and non verbal) and will practise gestures, facial expressions and understanding of personal space etc.
We will also further develop conversational skills (starting or joining a conversation, maintaining a discussion and finishing appropriately).
Feelings and friendships
We will develop understanding of ours and others’ emotions, what friendship means and the skills required to maintain a meaningful friendship.
We will also look at strategies to cope when things go wrong and how to resolve conflict.
These sessions will include some discussion, role play and active tasks with video clips and some games and group activities.
