Autism Spectrum

Autism Spectrum

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is said to be a “developmental disorder” because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life.

Autism is known as a “spectrum” disorder because there is a wide variety in the type and severity of symptoms people experience. ASD occurs in all ethnic, racial, and economic groups.

Although ASD can be a lifelong disorder, treatments, and services can improve a person’s symptoms and the ability to function in life.

Children and adults with ASD usually have:

  • Difficulty with communication and interaction with other people
  • Restricted interests and repetitive behaviors
  • Symptoms that hurt the person’s ability to function properly at home, school, work, and other areas of life

ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Communication Workshop for Parents

ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Communication Workshop for Parents

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a a neuro-developmental disorder that can cause significant social, communication, and behavioral challenges for the sufferer as well as the parents of the child.
Parents of children with autism experience more stress than parents of typical-developing children which can put stress on their marriage, other children, work, finances, and personal relationships and responsibilities.
This workshop is designed to give parents a better understanding of ASD and provides practical tools and skills that will enable them to improve the communication with their child and reduce the stress of caring for them.
The workshop is based on experiential learning and parents will go through various exercises, designed to challenge their communication style, behaviour and thinking.
Although this workshop is beneficial for parents and carers of ASD children, health professionals are welcome to join.
