Navigating Autism at Home and School

Navigating Autism at Home and School

There are growing numbers of children and young people receiving a diagnosis of autism or other forms of neurodivergence. Early identification provides the key to greater outcomes in school, home and life.

Professor Tony Attwood will help provide an understanding and strategies to help you guide your child or young person so that they can navigate their environment and increase their potential. With a career spanning five decades, Professor Tony Attwood is considered to be one of the world’s foremost experts on autism. His renowned books Asperger’s Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals and The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome, have been translated into over 30 languages. They cover diagnosis, social relations, sensory issues, motor control and typical issues faced by autistic people and their support networks.

Topics covered in this webinar include:

  • What is Autism/The Spectrum/Asperger’s. Are there differences? What do these terms mean?
  • Where does mental health sit with autism?
  • Strategies to help in your home and everyday life
  • How parents/carers and schools can work together for positive outcomes
  • Strategies for approaching behaviours at school
  • Kids working alongside neurotypicals at school. What does and should this look like in the classroom

Following the webinar, Professor Attwood will be available to answer your questions

The webinar focuses on information relating to children and young people aged 8 – 14 years.

An initiative of Northern Region Network of Councils, organised by Northern Beaches Council and supported by Lane Cove Council, Mosman Council, North Sydney Council, City of Ryde Council, Willoughby Council, Hornsby Council and Ku-ring- gai Council.
