People with autism spectrum disorder experience social and communication impairments together with restricted repetitive speech interests and behaviours and unusual responses to sensory stimuli. These impairments can result in high rates of anxiety and frustration which can contribute to challenging behaviour. There is also a significant overlap with other mental and behavioural disorders. This workshop will provide an overview of the biomedical and psychosocial interventions and explores the evidence base for some of the more commonly used interventions

All VDDS workshops employ a variety of learning strategies including lectures, exercises and discussions based on case examples and attendees will be expected to actively contribute and participate.
