ADDvanced Solutions Community Network are commissioned by Warrington CCG and the local authority to be a partner in the neurodevelopmental partnership. As part of the offer, we are offering free awareness-raising training for any professionals working with Warrington families. This training has been aimed at a target audience of specialist and non-specialist staff whose day-to-day roles may bring them into contact with families who live with children/ young people with neurodevelopmental conditions (NDCs). This is for all early help practitioners, educators, social care and health services workers and could include non-care and non-clinical workers such as administrators and receptionists, drivers, catering staff and sport or leisure industry staff working with or supporting children and families living with NDCs.
Two hour's twilight training for professionals who work with families of girls living with Autism living in Warrington. Girls with autism have been under-diagnosed and misunderstood for many years, however there is an increasing bank of knowledge and experience that is enabling girls to access the understanding and support that they need. This course has been developed to provide an awareness and understanding of the day to day challenges facing girls living with an autism spectrum disorder/condition, in order to better equip staff supporting children, young people and families. Certificates of attendance will be issued after the event.
What will attendees learn from this event? To recognise the different indicators of autism in girls and boys, and those which are similar. An understanding of the specific ways in which autism can impact girls. To recognise the impact that unsupported and unmanaged Autism can have on an individual girl and her family. To recognise how best to support girls with autism and their families, and how to work towards the best outcomes for them. An introduction to some resources available for working with girls on the Autism spectrum.
Delegates should arrive at 3pm for registration in readiness for a 3.15pm start; training finishes at 5.15pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Photographs of the event may be taken on the day.
