Autism Puberty, Post School Transitioning & Relationships Workshop For teachers, health professionals, community support workers & families of Autistic individuals aged 12+ Nelle Frances' new workshop is the culmination of many years of research, her extensive experience with clients and her personal lived experience. The one day course provides a detailed description of how Puberty presents in individuals with Autism, including internal and external factors that can trigger sensory responses. Participants are provided with strategies for guiding these teens through the puberty process, analysing the heightened sensory issues experienced during this time. Discussion includes the dangers and vulnerabilities commonly displayed in Autistic teens. Nelle delivers a practical model for successful Post-school Transition, and provides step-by-step guiding templates.


Participants will case-manage a scenario in small groups, and then conference the merits versus the limitations of proposed plans for greater understanding. The afternoon session investigates research about Sexuality and Gender Identity and identifies the skills necessary for Autistic individuals to establish successful and ongoing Relationships and friendships.
