Continuing Professional Development: Autistic Children Grow Up To Be Autistic Adults
Reframing Autism invites you to join this professional development workshop led by Dr Sandra Thom-Jones that focusses on supporting Autistic clients to feel understood, accepted and valued.
The session will cover many topics, including why autism statistics are confusing and misleading, the myth that children grow out of autism, masking and camouflaging, remembering who your client is, how childhood interventions can impact on Autistic adults, and how you can help us find our place in the world.
Dr Sandra Thom-Jones (she/her) is an Autistic woman and the mother of two Autistic adult sons. She is an academic, author, artisan, and advocate for the inclusion of Autistic people in all aspects of society. Sandra is the author of Growing in to Autism (MUP, 2022). Sandra has written a range of research publications about autism over the course of her career and held senior university leadership positions. She now works as a consultant, providing a range of personalised services through her website Autistic Professor. Sandra provides services to support Autistic people and their families and friends, with a particular focus on Autistic adults and services for workplaces, educational institutions and other organisations that want to create more inclusive and supportive environments for Autistic people.
We recommend that professionals undertake Reframing Autism's on-demand introductory professional development workshop, Using neurodiversity to support Autistic children and their families, before enrolling in continuing professional development opportunities.
