Description

Welcome to the Group: Reframing Autism,

The mission of this group is to help parents and carers of children with autism to shift our focus from causes and cures, to move beyond our preoccupation with interventions and therapies, and instead to embrace the unique gifts our children have to offer.

Together, let’s re-frame our autism journeys to see the opportunity, the optimism, the hope, and the joy of parenting Children with Autism

During the Reframing Autism groups, you can expect to be inspired by:

  • Formal presentations by autistic experts, and experts in autism, on topics that are relevant to your child (think sensory processing, wellbeing, communication possibilities, stimming, passions, mental health, inclusion, and acceptance);

  • An introduction to the neurodiversity movement, and to how it can empower you and your child;

  • An approach to appreciating your child’s individual strengths by embracing their autism, and

  • The opportunity to meet and grow with a group of like-minded parents who want to create a world which embraces their child’s exceptionalities and gifts.


This session topic:

During this session, we will have a panel of parents and Autistic speakers talking on the topic of '‘How to Be An Effective Ally’.

The discussion will include:

  • Neurodiversity

  • Labels and the power of identification

  • Offering support to the autistic community and to other families

  • Telling my child about their autism diagnosis

  • Why functioning labels are damaging

  • What is presuming competence

  • Ways to connect with the autistic community.
