Recognising early signs of distress in Autistic children and young people

Recognising early signs of distress in Autistic children and young people

In this session Evaleen Whelton from AUsome Training will discuss ways to identify early signs of distress in Autistic children and what we can do to de-escalate stressful situations. We will look at meltdowns, sensory processing, double empathy and situations that may be stressful for the Monotropic mind.

Topics include:
● What does stress look like in Autistic children?
● Common school stressors
● Monotropism
● Working with Autistic neurology
● Social and sensory audit tools


Evaleen Whelton is founder of Ireland's Autistic-led training provider AUsome Training. She has worked with kids and teens for over 20 years. In her work as a speech and drama teacher, Evaleen has always been interested in building esteem and supporting kids to be themselves. 

Since making the discovery that she herself is Autistic in 2014, she has focused her passion and attention on supporting Autistic kids and young people to be the very best versions of themselves and to be themselves unapologetically. 

Her work centres the rights and dignity of Autistics and she has a deep understanding of the issues that face young Autistics in their social world and much of the work she does is to break down these social barriers for Autistics young and old.

Her work is driven by her vision of the world.  A world where everyone is valued and treated with respect and dignity.  A world where Autistic kids are not pathologised and our ways are better understood, accepted and celebrated.
