I am her voice- Girls with Autism Workshop
In this workshop I will discuss the ways in which some females with autism may present. As an adult only just receiving my diagnosis in my thirties, I have learnt how to mask my autism traits to the detriment of my mental health. Learn how females are quite often mis-diagnosed with a mental health condition such as anorexia and anxiety disorder, much like Myself. Unless girls show signs that they have classic autism it is often harder to diagnose. I also have two daughters both diagnosed with Autism.
Explaining the Senses- Learning to Live with Sensory Issues
Did you know we have more than Five Senses??? Are you aware of Proprioception, Vestibular Feedback and Interoception??
How many of us know children and adults with sensory issues that have what can be described as the ‘delayed effect’, masking their sensory needs at school/workplace (yes this does happen) and then home time they experience what can be described as a Meltdown and often in my case Shutdown.
This workshop will give you first hand advice, support and techniques around your child’s sensory issues. Discover ways in which I often mask my sensory difficulties and how I have learnt to regulate my senses through time.
ADHD and Me- The Misunderstood Condition
At Thirty Four Years of age I wondered why I struggled with organizing myself, why my mind feels like it could go a million miles an hour, why my memory is poor, why can I start tasks and have difficulty finishing them…. ADHD can often be missed in both Girls and Boys. Often a child can be labeled ‘Naughty’, ‘Fidgety’, ‘A day dreamer’, ‘Can’t stop talking’…. Can you identify with this? Is your child in attentive, forgetful, hyperactive, impulsive….
ADHD is often a misunderstood condition if not diagnosed early. Often it’s when you reach adulthood that without a diagnosis the consequences can be extremely difficult to live with. Relationship Difficulties, Keeping a Job, Passing Exams, Paying Bills, Attending Appointments..
Learn the difference between ADHD and ADD, find out how poor executive functioning skills can affect your daily life…. This workshop will give you an inside view on ADHD.

This Workshop will help explain autism from a personal perspective as well as the techniques and theories used to help support those on the spectrum.
