About this event

Presented by:

Amy Laurent, PhD, OTR/L and JÂcqûelyn Fede, PhD

On 6 & 13 JULY 2022 from 6:30pm -9:30pm AEST (2 Wednesday evenings Australia Eastern Standard Time)

Co-Founders & Co-Directors, Autism Level UP

This virtual workshop is designed to reframe our understanding of challenging behaviors by examining how energy (emotional) regulation skillset influences an individual’s capacity to navigate their day, particularly when difficulties are encountered. Factors influencing and means of supporting energy (emotional) regulation are explored from both a first-person autistic perspective, as well as developmental perspective. Practical guidelines for providing supports for energy (and emotional) regulation to increase connectedness and active engagement in a variety of contexts will be highlighted!

Strategies for supporting individuals across the lifespan and at different developmental levels will be discussed. A focus will be placed on supporting autisitic and neurodivergent individuals, but the tools have applicability for facilitating engagement for a wide range of people.

Please note that this course is live and will start at 6:30pm Australia Eastern Standard Time (AEST). There are 2 sessions on concurrent Wednesday evenings. They will be recorded and registered participants will have access to the recordings for 3 weeks following the final session. Our virtual format is interactive and participants will have the opportunity share ideas, ask questions, and learn from one another throughout the evenings.

This course is appropriate for autistic people, educators, therapists, parents, carers, researchers, & students.
