Strategies aimed at autistic people often focus on behaviour, overlooking the significance of autism as a neurotype. Understanding the distinction between autism as a neurotype and autism as behaviour can have a powerful impact on how you support those whose needs are expressed through behaviour and also those who may be flying under the radar.
Sensory Engagement and Inclusion Specialist, Joanna Grace highlights the impact of understanding autism as a neurotype rather than a behaviour pattern. This training session looks at how our approach to autistic people changes once we have respect for the neurological differences autistic people experience. Joanna also explains how this change in perspective and approach can help with people’s mental health, self-esteem and development of personal identity.
