The 2-hour workshops are tailored to meet the needs of teachers, carers, support workers, social workers and any other professionals working with children with ASD. If you are working with a child or young person with ASD then these workshops are for you!
The workshops are run by highly qualified facilitators who are working with ASD children on a daily basis
