Autism & Meltdown


Autism & Puberty

29 Apr 2020


Autism for Dad's  - a no-nonsense, easy to follow explanation of Autism in bloke's language. This innovative webinar is specifically for men with Autism in their life - dad, grandads, uncles, nephews. Learn about Autism characteristics, meltdown, what your partner needs after a rough day and parenting strategies that work for Autism. 

Autism Meltdown Techniques - a webinar offering an in-depth explanation of the neurological processes occurring during a meltdown, and a 10 step plan for managing meltdowns, while minimising self-harm and violence. This successful technique was refined from managing multiple daily meltdowns during our family's personal experience, across many years.

Autism and Puberty   - a webinar exploring the intricacies of puberty through an autistic lens. The changes brought by puberty are exacerbated by sensory issues, increased anxiety and impulse control challenges. Nelle provides you the information you need to alleviate some of the more potentially devastating effects puberty can have on academic, social and emotional development.

By engaging in these WEBINARS you can benefit from Nelle's expertise, research and lived experience of Autism!

The ONLINE DELIVERY means you can access this training wherever you are - home, office, mining camp on your FIFO swing.

Sensory Detective  ® WORKSHOP 
***WORKSHOP TITLE - "Decoding Autism/Asperger’s behaviours through sensory awareness"

Nelle Frances delivers an innovative training session titled "Decoding Autism/Asperger's behaviours through sensory awareness".

The training  includes Nelle's high-impact Sensory Detective ® workshop - an interactive simulation that allows you to look at Autism/Asperger's from the inside out! You will learn first hand that sensory stimuli influences all behaviour, emotional development and academic progress of those with Autism/Asperger's.

specific techniques for dealing with challenging behaviours and decreasing stress in individuals with Autism/Asperger's. These techniques allow you to guide and support ASD individuals towards self regulation.

Nelle’s new workshop is the culmination of many years of research, her extensive experience with clients and her personal lived experience. The workshop provides a detailed description of individuals on the  Autism Spectrum, and a vivid insight into the subtle intricacies of Autism. You'll investigate how puberty presents in Autistic individuals, and it's effects on sensory responses. Workshop participants are provided a practical model for successful Post-school Transition, using a step-by-step template guide. You’ll Case-Manage a scenario and collaborate outcomes in small groups.
