About this event

This training workshop will discuss how autism affects the way a child communicates, interacts with others, processes information and the impact of stress on all of these areas.

You will learn how to use mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques to help children with autism self-regulate their stress reaction and increase their impulse control.

Key learning:

  • How stress impacts on a child’s thinking, emotional experience and behaviour
  • How Mindfulness can help children with autism and why
  • Practising a range of techniques and developing programmes for individual children and groups/classes.
