Autism Puberty & Post School Transitioning Workshop
For teachers, health professionals, community support workers & families of Autistic individuals

Nelle Frances' new workshop is the culmination of many years of research, her extensive experience with clients and her personal lived experience.

The one day course provides a detailed description of how Puberty presents in individuals with Autism, including internal and external factors that can trigger sensory responses. Participants are provided with strategies for guiding these teens through the puberty process, analysing the heightened sensory issues experienced during this time. Discussion includes the vulnerabilities commonly displayed in Autistic teens.

Nelle delivers a practical model for successful Post-school Transition, and provides step-by-step guiding templates. Participants will case-manage a scenario in small groups, and then conference the merits versus the limitations of proposed plans for greater understanding.

Nelle will draw on her extensive clinical experience to share with participants a variety of anecdotes show-casing the diversity of the Autistic community during this transitioning age.

Workshop outcomes:

  • detailed description  of Autism characteristics
  • explanation of neurological & biological processes during meltdown
  • detailed step-by-step management of meltdown
  • recognise + link sensory issues and behaviour
  • understanding of puberty and sensory issues
  • practical model of post-school transition
