This training will discuss how the challenges of autism can be exacerbated by the expectations of mainstream schooling, and seeks to provide key learnings and therapeutic approaches to support autistic young people in the various stages of school refusal. The current model of the In2School program will be presented along with a case discussion. There will be an opportunity for questions and further discussion.
