Understanding autism in the early years

Thursday 15 October 2020

Autism is a neurological difference which can affect how a child communicates and interacts with others, and how they make sense of the world. In this session you will understand more about the autistic spectrum and steps towards designing more autism friendly sessions for young children and their families.




This session will be online using Zoom. You will receive an email with further details nearer the time. Please also check your junk inbox.

However, if you are an individual, freelancer or student who is currently not in employment, and for whom this fee would prevent you from attending, please email with the title ‘Admin Fee Exemption’ and you will be sent a discount code – no questions asked.
