Characteristics associated with autism together with elevated levels of anxiety can potentially restrict opportunities for individuals on the spectrum to participate in activities at home, school and in the community.
We can’t automatically assume, however, that increased participation across all activities is desired by the individual or will lead to better outcomes.
We will share our latest research on patterns of participation for children on the spectrum and consider how child and parent views of participation are central to interventions that aim to increase participation in life situations.
Cost per seminar is $120 for students/parents/concession card holders and $195 for professionals. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07 3735 5640.
