Scottish Autism will be running a series of 'knowledge sharing' seminars over the next few months. Disseminating our developing knowledge of autism and effective practice is a key organisational objective here at Scottish Autism. These Knowledge Share series of seminars augment the work we already do in training and at our national conferences throughout the year.
Chaired by Charlene Tait, the aim of the events is to create a forum where we can communicate with parents and professionals. We will deliver informed, practical information on a range of issues that directly impact on the quality of life and well-being of individuals on the spectrum and their families.
So who should attend these events? Parents, carers and all professionals working in the field of autism should all find them useful and informative. The events will be held in three locations across Scotland (West Coast, East Coast, and the North). Details are below. Participants will benefit from the opportunity to hear Scottish Autism’s professionals present case studies of real life situations from an education, autism service and family perspective providing delegates with the knowledge and practical strategies used to resolve situations. The event will offer a platform for sharing experiences and networking with other parents and professionals in the field of Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
These seminars look like being very popular. Networking and sharing experience is a great way to learn a little bit more about Autism, but also to hear how others are coping day in day out with the same or similar challenges. It's always good to know you're not alone, and hear strategies used by others for dealing with autism and the issues it presents on a daily basis.
