Supporting Big Emotions & ‘Challenging Behaviours’

Today we will completely reframe your perspective on your child’s ‘challenging behaviours’. We will help you understand why your child has tantrums, meltdowns and anxious feelings. We dive deep into the common triggers and both the constructive and destructive strategies autistic people use to cope. You’ll gain a tremendous amount of insight into how your child’s brain works and why it’s wired differently. You’ll be empowered with practical and common-sense strategies you need to diffuse and de-escalate any emotional overwhelm and outbursts, but most importantly you’ll learn how to avoid it in the first place.

Diet & Lifestyle​

Today you will learn inexpensive and widely applicable lifestyle optimisation strategies to promote the healthy development of your child’s body and brain. You will learn exactly how food is affecting your child’s behaviour and health, and what you can do to improve their diet. You’ll be guided through the steps to optimise your child’s gut health and get a clear picture as to how the gut is actually related to autism (a ‘neuro’developmental condition). And all that information would be absolutely useless if we didn’t address the how – how you are actually going to get your child to eat real, nutritious and cultured foods! So we delve deep into all the tips and tricks you can implement today to encourage your fussy eater to try new foods.

Thriving at School & Work

Is your child struggling to make and keep friends? Do they experience high levels of social anxiety? Do they have a difficult time paying attention in a world that’s so distracting? Is school, the workplace or job seeking a constant challenge?

If you answered yes to any of these questions – you are not going to want to miss today’s interviews! Today you are going to learn from a diverse range of speakers on how you can enable and empower your child to thrive at school and in the workplace. We discuss the best resources and strategies to promote coping skills, enhance attention, boost learning and manage anxiety.

But mainstream school isn’t for everyone, right? Homeschooling is fast becoming a more popular option for autistic children. So, today we explore why homeschooling could be a better option for your child and we tackle one of the biggest conversations around this topic – does homeschooling really hinder the development of social skills?
