SPRC Seminar Series 2014: Sensory difficulties, distressed behaviour and establishing communication with children and adults with severe autism

Phoebe Caldwell

This presentation will look at the sensory issues involved in autism and approaches that support the child or adult and help them to understand and feel at home in environments that so easily trigger their self-defence systems. Using body language to communicate, she demonstrates through film how we can set up meaningful interaction with our conversation partners that helps us to reduce their stress levels and enjoy a better quality of life.
