Understanding Autism

Autistic Brain

If you suspect your child might be on the Autism spectrum, or if they have been recently diagnosed, you may be finding the available information on Autism overwhelming. In this workshop we will sort out fact from fiction and discuss clear pathways to support your child to be the best version of themselves they can be.

Hosted by: Dr Michelle Livock
Location: This group will be an online webinar.
When:

  • Term 1: Thursday 24th Feb, 6pm – 7.30pm
  • Term 3: Monday 25th July, 6pm – 7.30pm

Autism, ADHD and Learning

Children Studying1

Redlands Psychologists recognise that children on the Autism Spectrum and those with ADHD encounter a number of challenges when learning in a school environment.  These challenges are due to differences in the way these children interpret and process information, and with their ability to engage with learning. This can lead to learning disengagement, school refusal, underperformance, and difficulty remaining calm at school.

This group aims to support parents, teachers, and learning support officers to understand the learning profile of children with ADHD and those on the Autism spectrum, and to provide evidence based practical strategies to assist your child or your students with learning both at school and at home.

Hosted by: Dr Michelle Livock
Location: This group will be an online webinar.
When:

  • Term 1: Thursday 3rd March, 6pm-7.30pm
  • Term 3: Monday 1st August, 6pm-7.30pm

Parenting tweens: puberty, social media, and relationships

The transition from childhood to adolescence can be an emotional and momentous one for both parents and tweens. This period of development, while wonderful in many ways, can also come with a number of challenges. These include navigating social media and the online world, friendships, understanding their bodies and developing a healthy body image, and how to manage and understand an emerging interest in relationships. In addition, because of changes in the brain at this point in development tweens can struggle to regulate their emotions, and many parents notice more intense emotions, low self-worth, and increased anxiety in their children at this age.

Across two, 1 hour sessions we will cover:

  • How does the brain change during the tween years, and how does this affect behaviour, mood, and social reasoning.
  • Maintaining the parent-child relationship during this period.
  • Managing meltdowns, anxiety, and challenging behaviour.
  • How to hold a boundary and create emotional safety.
  • Social media and technology use.
  • Body image.
  • Supporting the development of healthy friendships and relationships.

Big Feelings, Autism and ADHD 2-Part Series

Children on the Autism Spectrum and those with ADHD encounter several challenges.  These challenges are due to differences in the way these children interpret and process information, and with their ability to engage not only with their environment but with the people around them.

Many children on the Autism spectrum and with ADHD experience strong emotions, and this can lead to meltdowns, aggression, panic attacks, running away, or complete shutdown. It can be difficult to know how to respond to this as a parent, carer, or educator.

Women on the Spectrum 3-Part Series

astronomy-dark-dawn

As we uncover more and more about how the brain works, differences in the way people think, process information, and understand the world around them are becoming more apparent. Autism is one way that the brain can be different, and women on the Autism spectrum have historically been misunderstood and underdiagnosed. Many girls and women on the Autism spectrum describe a feeling of ‘not fitting in’ throughout their childhood and adolescence, and have experienced anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.

This workshop is for women who suspect they are on the Autism spectrum and those who have been diagnosed. Our goal is for attendees to leave with clear information on women and autism and with tools and strategies to manage common areas of challenge.

Please note, this group will allow for a maximum of 15 participants.
