Ever wonder where you are on the autism spectrum? Is generosity a word that you would associate with autism and if not, why not? What makes authenticity second nature for people with autism when many neuro-typical people seem to have to strive to achieve it?
The field of autism is developing constantly with innovative discoveries frequently being made especially in neuroscience and technology, these findings are radically challenging our perceptions, judgments and stereotypes of the cognitive and social abilities of people with autism.
‘Curious…’ is an experiential seminar designed to raise your awareness and understanding of autism. In this dynamic workshop you will gain an insight into the ‘workings of the autistic mind,’ (A.M Baggs) experience what it may be like to have autism and consider the diversity, gifts and challenges of the spectrum. Now is a wonderful time to remain curious about current theory and practice and to be open hearted and relational in our approach.
