Sarah Wild and Sarah Hendrickx leads a day of learning for parents, education, social and health practitioners to develop knowledge and understanding of how Autism Spectrum Disorder affects the lives of female pupils and how we can empower them to learn, accept themselves and lead happy lives.
Sarah Wild is Headteacher of Limpsfield Grange School, Surrey, which caters for the needs of girls with autism. She shares deep insights into a side of the autistic spectrum which is widely misunderstood.
Sarah will cover how autism presents in girls, the coping strategies they employ, strategies to support self-awareness, self-confidence and ways to support learning and achievement across a broad based curriculum.
Sarah Hendrickx will share her life experiences and give advice on positive relationships and happiness for those on the Autistic spectrum. There will be opportunities during the day to focus on individual cases and problem solving approaches.
Sarah was diagnosed autistic with Asperger syndrome at the age of 43 – after she had written several books on the subject. Autism in women is so invisible that Sarah did not recognise it in herself! Sarah speaks openly about her wide and varied life experiences in her talks as an autism speaker.
Cost: £99 per person to include refreshments.
