Decoding Autism


Originally designed as a four-day workshop, due to demand there are now options of this being a one, two, three or four-day workshop. While the one-day is an introduction, the four-day is absolutely full of detailed information on the topic. Each of these workshops arepresentations of pioneering research in the neurobiology of autism, with treatment strategies supporting people who work with individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Whether you are an educator, therapist of any kind, psychologist, psychiatrist, caregiver or keen parent, you will develop a deeper understanding of the brain-body science of ASD, and develop evidence-informed treatment and therapy choices across a wide range of possibilities. 

Learning outcomes:

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will:

  • Have an introductory understanding of the current science of genetic and environmental interaction in the development of ASD 

  • Have an introductory appreciation of the immune system’s effect upon the brain and the behaviour of individuals with autism

  • Understand how the neurological wiring of autism impacts attention span, self-regulation, learning and behaviour

  • Appreciate the sensory contributions to challenges experienced by individuals with ASD.

  • Appreciate the functional movement challenges experienced by individuals with ASD.

  • Discuss effective and sustainable teaching, therapy and day-to-day strategies that support individuals with ASD to be their best selves through a relational, sensory and motor lens.

* Reminder that Decoding Autism is either a one, two, three or four-day workshop. Each version has its own outline and objectives; please contact Relationship Matters if you’d like more information.
