Responsive Communication Training for parents, carers & professionals
Responsive Communication Training for parents & carers of autistic children and adults, also for professionals that support those on the spectrum.
November 16th or November 22nd
Gwendraeth Hall, Drefach, Llanelli, SA14 7AB
Autistic people often experience sensory processing difficulties which can cause distress as well as severe physical pain. They may also find it difficult to use speech to communicate. As a result of their communication and sensory difficulties, many autistic people experience distress and isolation in their daily lives which, in turn, can lead to distress behaviours (also known as “challenging behaviour”). These distress behaviours are often difficult for parents, carers and professionals to cope with or know how to respond to positively.
Responsive Communication is a combination of sensory based approaches and Intensive Interaction (using body language to communicate). It can reduce the autistic person’s experience of sensory pain, distress and isolation and increase their experience of wellbeing. Responsive Communication is really good at building emotional engagement between the autistic person and those around them.
This training day will present the principles of Responsive Communication and illustrate them by means of film clips and a variety of interactive activities. You will be given the opportunity to explore your own sensory profile and so to gain an insight into the sensory experience of the autistic person you care for.
