ASD is a life-long neurological disorder that affects the way a person communicates and relates to the people and world around them. ASD can affect behaviour, social interactions, and one’s ability to communicate verbally. ASD is a spectrum disorder, which means that while all people with ASD will experience certain difficulties, the degree to which each person on the spectrum experiences these challenges will be different.
This workshop will serve to inform, educate, and spread awareness about ASD. It is an introduction workshop so it is great for parents, grandparents, professionals, extended family, etc. Bring a friend!
