Supporting females and adults on the autism spectrum - 30 June 2018
Date: Saturday, 30 June 2018, 9.00 am – 4.00 pm
Location: University of Wollongong, Building 20.4
This workshop will focus on the needs and experiences of adults and girls on the autism spectrum. We will first look at recent research on the specific issues that adults on the autism spectrum experience once they leave school. We will also examine the factors that have enabled some adults to achieve success and discuss strategies that can support adults on the spectrum to achieve personal and professional goals. In the second half of the workshop, we will discuss the unique profile of strengths and needs demonstrated by females on the autism spectrum, and will utilise activities to enable participants to develop and utilise strategies to support the special needs of girls and women in social and educational settings.
