This new half day seminar aims to explore the impact of stress and anxiety in autism and to discuss ways to equip autistic people, families and professionals with the tools to identify and deal with it. High levels of stress and anxiety are known to be a major factor in determining quality of life and other outcomes in individuals and families affected by autism and it is important to understand the nature of this, and how it can be prevented and effectively managed.
The seminar will focus on the underlying theories of stress in autism, and will include a first hand account, and practical strategies.
Join us for the first event of this kind for Research Autism. Hear from three expert speakers, join in the discussions and debates, and put your questions forward.
For health, social care, and education professionals, parents/carers, and people on the autism spectrum.
