Middletown Centre for Autism - Autism, Relationships and Sexuality Education, Including Life Skills
This session will examine the impact of adolescence on young people with autism. Participants will be shown how to incorporate behavioural interventions with visual strategies to help teenagers with autism cope with some of the typical issues of adolescence. The training will provide practical strategies that educational professionals may use to support teenagers with autism. It will also focus on the delivery of sexuality and relationship education for students with autism.
This training will examine the broad definition of life skills, within the contexts of home, school, leisure and personal care, and how the core difficulties, associated with autism, directly affect the development of such skills. It will demonstrate how life skills can be improved and facilitated within the home and school environments. This will include increasing independence in family and classroom activities, the daily routines of the family home, the classroom, within leisure and personal care activities.
