Autism: What are the Early Indicators | Midland | 22/08/2018

August 22 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

Free workshops for Community Health and Family Professionals (Community health nurses, social workers, community allied health professionals, Local Coordinators, NDIS planners, Childcare workers and teachers)

What are the early indicators of Autism? What role can parents and people who work with children play in supporting early diagnosis and intervention. An estimated 1 in 100 children have an Autism Spectrum Disorder. A majority are not diagnosed until they are three years old, more than a year after they can be reliably diagnosed and receive life-changing intervention.

This information session will help participants:

  • Identify early signs of Autism 
  • Understand diagnostic and intervention pathways
  • Develop strategies to support parents and to facilitate early learning for their child 
  • Learn about services and family support offered by the Autism Association and referral pathways

Intended Participants

Community health nurses, social workers, community allied health professionals, Local Coordinators, NDIS planners, Childcare workers and teachers.
