Programme Description

The “deficits” associated with autism are well documented, yet in recent years there has also been a body of research that has investigated strengths in the condition. In particular there are a large number of reports of superior performance on a variety of visual and auditory processing tasks.

This session focuses on the idea of Autism as a ‘difference’ rather than a ‘disability’. Data on situations where autistic people do better than non-autistic people will be presented. Practical application of these skills will be shared for the classroom environment on specific modifications that can be made to harness the unique perceptual abilities of autistic students.

There will also be focus on how these skills are being recognised in the workplace, and how they might manifest within employment. The main barriers to employment for autistic individuals and how we can work to overcome them and promote better outcomes will also be covered.
