Adolescent issues for Autistic teenagers – Prof. Tony Attwood’ is a 3 hour webinar, including a Q & A session.

Autistic teenagers experience greater challenges during adolescence than their typical peers. Professor Tony Attwood explores these challenges and provides strategies to improve coping mechanisms, resilience, and connection with peers.

It should interest all mental health professionals, and particularly parents and those that support autistic children and young people. There will be effective interventions, tips, and advice, that can be used immediately.

Building on a robust evidence-base, all of these activities can be applied in the home, classroom, and social situations.
