Developing adult bodies is normal progression for all young people but for those on the autism spectrum is may be particularly difficult.
Regardless of the diagnosis, all individuals with ASD will reach puberty around the same time as their neuro-typical peers. This is often a much under-discussed topic within autism with many parents and young people often unequipped with the body changes, hormone changes and other issues associated with puberty.
The workshop will discuss the various puberty situations as well as trouble-shooting scenarios to help make this particular transition easier for all.
Target Audience: Parents of children diagnosed with Autism, under suspicion of Autism or related disorder. Professionals from both the statutory and voluntary sector supporting children/young people with autism and their families.
