  • “This was quite simply the best training on ASD I have received to date”
  • “The real-life stories helped me to understand the autistic perspective”
  • “I feel very lucky to have got on to the course”

  Autism is a Diffability not a Disability - a thought from Wendy Lawson and she is coming to Wales. [published 9 Mar 2009]

Wendy Lawson is an adult with an autism spectrum disorder. Wendy prefers the word ‘diffability’ to disorder and her research seeks to explore what being differently abled means in the world of neuro-diversity. Currently Wendy is working towards her PhD in Psychology with Deakin University, Victoria, Australia. Wendy’s work explores the influence of neurological development in individuals with autism with reference to impact upon learning styles.

As a writer, poet and adult educator, Wendy is well known both in the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Sharing her knowledge, understanding and experience of autistic spectrum disorders has been Wendy's occupation over the past 12 years.

To date Wendy has written 7 books varying from her autobiography to an everyday text on Autism and a book about friendships. Her latest book is all about the concepts of what being normal might mean for each of us.

Wendy is coming to Newport, South Wales on 20th April 2009 from 11am to 2pm to talk about the Changing Face of Autism.  If you have never heard Wendy speak this is a talk not to miss and if you have heard Wendy before I am sure you will want to book again!

Please find booking form attached – any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

ASD – When the theory needs to become practice

Gill Williams, Ysgol Clywedog, Wrexham

Gill Williams is Inclusion Manager and senior Teacher at Ysgol Clywedog in Wrexham. She is also mother of a wonderful son with Asperger’s Syndrome.   She started her teaching career as a mainstream RE teacher at St David’s, a Secondary School in Wrexham where she became Head of Humanities. It is very likely that she would have continued her career in the Humanities Field had she not had a son with Specific Difficulties. Gill very naively believed that during his school years all would be well and his needs would be met but school years became a “living torture” for her son and an extremely upsetting and annoying time for Gill. Such was the frustration that Gill decided

to change her career path and enter with a driven passion the specific world of Special Needs Support. This started an ongoing retraining programme with a particular focus on ASD. She leads in house training to raise awareness of ASD and has brought the school through the practical process of gaining ASD friendly status.  She has also been invited to join the “Strategic Action Plan-Wales” Working Party for Wrexham LEA.

 

This workshop will focus on specific difficulties a child with Asperger’s Syndrome might meet in school – the case studies presented will be based on first hand experience. What happens when you need to put the theory into practice? Discussions points will be based on issues which can, with thought be quite easily resolved. Participants will be given the opportunity to reflect on their own responses and to share good practice. The workshop will also aim to highlight some typical school processes which are not ASD friendly.  Gill aims to present the challenges from a mother’s viewpoint but with a very realistic knowledge of all the  other demands placed on the classroom teacher. Some humorous and thought provoking anecdotes will be included.

  Donna Williams - 12th September 2008 [published 4 Jul 2008]

12th Sept 08  Seminar:        Understanding and working with challenging behaviours in people on the autism spectrum

Speaker: Donna Williams

Venue: Conference Centre at Esis, Trefforest (1-3)

Cost:   Practitioner    £45

            Parent/ Person with ASD £10

Autism spectrum conditions can effect the way people use their bodies, how they see, hear, physically experience their world.  ASCs can effect the way people make sense of and communicate information, how they work with their own emotions and other people, how they motivations and fears will be expressed.  A significant percentage will also have additional health issues or mood, anxiety, compulsive, attention or attachment disorders.  Any of these things can up the tempo of a broad range of challenging behaviours not just for the family, school, community and workplace, but most centrally, for the person themselves.  Drawing on over a decade of experience as an autism consultant and my own experience with challenging behaviours, this lecture will identify these issues and explore simple straightforward strategies which can reduce trouble spots and address challenging behaviours in more autism-friendly and autism-informed styles.

Donna Williams is a person diagnosed with Autism, a Sociologist and qualified teacher and the author of nine published books including Autism; An Inside Out Approach and her international best-selling autobiography, Nobody Nowhere  (all available from Jessica Kingsley Publishers www.jkp.com ). 

Donna is an internationally renowned public speaker, a consultant, as well as a sculptor, painter, composer and screenwriter.

Target Audience for seminars :

Professionals working in all disciplines at all levels as well as parents of children with ASD will benefit from this insightful and inspirational course.
