Overview

Everyone with autism demonstrates differences in their communication which may result in miscommunication and misunderstandings.


This evidence-informed workshop is designed to increase the participant’s understanding of the nature of communication in autism and to provide an overview of supports which can assist in bridging the gap between neurotypical and autistic individuals to reduce miscommunication and misunderstandings.
