Adult Autism Assessment 4 Part Workshop Series

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

We have noticed an increase in enquiries from clinicians wanting to upskill in adult autism assessment. They are keen to diversify their skills and/or meet the needs of their existing clients who may be unidentified Autistic.

We have developed this four-part series to meet that need. This series does not replace 1:1 supervision, which is essential for any psychologist upskilling in this area.

Sessions are delivered in a blended webinar/workshop format, including breakout rooms to workshop skills. A fundamental understanding of the Autistic neurotype and neurodiversity affirming paradigm will be assumed knowledge. Groups are capped at 14 attendees, to foster a supportive, community space.

We have decided to keep the cost accessible, particularly to reduce barriers for Autistic clinicians who are more likely to be under-earning due to disability (#NothingAboutUsWithoutUs). The fee works out to $150/hr.

Cost: $1,200 (8 hours)

This is a 4-part Series, with dates as follows:

Fri 6 Oct 5 - 7 PM AEDT

Fri 20 Oct 5 - 7 PM AEDT

Fri 3 Nov 5 - 7 PM AEDT

Fri 17 Nov 5 - 7 PM AEDT

You will receive Zoom links via email prior to the sessions.

Previous workshop attendees have said:

'I loved that it explored the tools in case people were too afraid to ask questions about something "simple". Really covered the bases (and fleshed them out further). It was great to hear about a few tools that I haven't used, as well as the reasoning for using certain tools. Very useful that you talked about clinical reasoning for backing up decisions - made me feel more confident in making my decisions.'

'Enjoy that there is no pressure to participate with your camera on or having to speak :) Just the best being able to learn and engage with amazing clinicians with lived experience. THANK YOU!'

'I really enjoyed exploring the function behind behaviours. Also, the rationale behind asking certain questions for the MIGDAS because there is such a knowledge gap there as the training really only focuses on HOW to administer rather than WHY you're gathering that info. Sooo so helpful! Thank you.'

'One of the most helpful parts of the session was the part describing the differentials between autism, ADHD, tics, & OCD. Such useful information!!'

'The open discussions and all of the examples were useful! And the no pressure to actually contribute if you’re a newbie like me who is on a massive learning journey. Thank you both!'
