Louise Zandian speaking at our conference, Keele University.
As part of our lottery funding Lifeworks organised an Autism Spectrum Conference at Keele University which took place on the 5th October 2017. The purpose of this was to raise awareness and to help professionals, students and anyone else interested in autistic spectrum conditions to understand and engage with people on the spectrum more effectively. Lifeworks endeavoured to highlight the challenges individuals on the spectrum face on a daily basis.
To end the conference the speakers formed a panel to enable a question and answer session. Donna's presentation focused on Autism and Policing, Pamela spoke about the Adult Autism Assessment Service, Luke gave his thoughts on how unhappy autistic children can be supported to become happy autistic adults. Louise's presentation was aimed on the development of communication support and mentoring for people with an average or above IQ on the Autistic Spectrum.
Lifeworks in partnership with Keele University have produced some support leaflets for coping with the pandemic.
Students liaised with our CEO and staff to gain knowledge about Lifeworks and the Autistic Spectrum. They were given the opportunity to attend online carer and client groups to learn more.
