Event Description:

Social situations can often be very difficult for autistic people. There are so many confusing social rules that appear to be learnt instinctively by non-autistic people. These rules can often cause anxiety as they are generally unwritten and not talked about. Featuring sessions lead by experts including Dean Beadle and Siobhan Timmins, our Autism and social skills conference explores practical strategies for minimising anxiety in social situations, new ways to support autistic people in building friendships and more intimate relationships, and techniques to develop social skills in the classroom Suitable for education professionals, occupational therapists, social workers and support workers, clinicians across the professional field, voluntary sector groups and not-for-profit organisations, and autistic people, their families and carers. With three different streams to choose from, you can select the seminars that are most relevant to your daily work. For sponsorship and exhibitio
