The mission of this Interest Group is to help parents and carers of children with autism to shift our focus from causes and cures, to move beyond our preoccupation with interventions and therapies, and instead to embrace the unique gifts our children have to offer.
The Reframing Autism group will meet four times this year and you can come to one or all of the sessions. Each session will cover a different topic.
Together, let’s reframe our autism journeys to see the opportunity, the optimism, the hope, and the joy of parenting Children with Autism.
In this Group, you can expect to be inspired by:
- Formal presentations by autistic experts, and experts in autism, on topics that are relevant to your child (think sensory processing, wellbeing, communication possibilities, stemming, passions, mental health, inclusion, and acceptance);
- An introduction to the neurodiversity movement, and to how it can empower you and your child;
- An approach to appreciating your child’s individual strengths by embracing their autism, and
- The opportunity to meet and grow with a group of like-minded parents who want to create a world which embraces their child’s exceptionalities and gifts.
Guest Speakers will be announced closer to each session.
