This is for generalist clinicians who want to adapt their therapeutic practice to be more ASD friendly (primary and secondary school ages) by understanding the unique differences in understanding and processing information for ASD clients so they can better target their clinical approach.
The workshop draws on the framework of PolyVagal Theory, looking at how survival mode is
activated and the challenges for the child with ASD with the social engagement system.

This event will cover:

  • Understand the key shifts in working with children including how to work with the parent
  • Teach children and families how to develop regulation skills through childhood
  • Understand the importance of visual aides in working with children with ASD and what this looks like in practice
  • Help young people construct a social narrative and better understand the missing information
  • Understand and apply some key ideas in exploring and explaining social behaviour
  • Engage in realistic goal setting and timeframes


  • Dr Deeta Kimber (Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist)
