Programme Description

Individuals on the autism spectrum perceive and experience the world differently. They may respond in ways that others do not expect and may be misunderstood.

“Social Narratives” provide us with an opportunity to address the potential barriers these individuals may face in applying what they have learnt to their real world. These include gaps in social awareness, or low motivation to engage in a situation that may not be very meaningful for them. 

The application component of this program will focus on key elements to help the participants to access meaningful information to help and support the individuals on the autism spectrum overcome barriers to learning and applying a new skill.

The 3 sessions, conducted 2 weeks apart, allows participants an opportunity to implement the strategies discussed, ascertain its effectiveness and review in subsequent sessions for further improvement.
