6 Week Autism Education Programme

Weekly 2 hour sessions will focus on:

  • Understanding Autism – what do we know about Autism?

  • Understanding sensory needs
  • Communication skills – including social anxiety,
  • Friendships and social media
  • Anxiety management – coping with distress and managing emotions

How will CAASS support help?

Support is aimed at providing individuals with the opportunity to:

  • Understand what autism is and how it affects them individually
  • Increase self-help strategies to better manage their emotional and mental wellbeing
  • Feel more confident to engage with others and community activities
  • Positively move forward independently to a more fulfilling life

Who is it for?

CAASS is available to adults who have or are waiting for an Autism assessment, or those who believe they are Autistic and would like further support.
