15 Oct 2021
About the event
It has become increasingly apparent that the presentations of some autistic individuals are not obvious. Consequently; this can lead to late diagnosis; misdiagnosis or no diagnosis at all. This training will provide professionals from key areas with the knowledge and ability to take a more in-depth look at the autistic individuals situation as a whole. This will in turn help professionals to better understand; support and identify complex or subtle presentations of autism. Presenting the latest research and practice specifically around the new British Association of Social Work (BASW) policy on Fabricated and Induced Illnesses (FII).
Autism, or Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) is a complex developmental disorder that is normally diagnosed in early childhood. People with autism have difficulties communicating, forming relationships with others and find it hard to make sense of the world around them. It is estimated that approximately 67 million people worldwide are affected by autism. Many others are undiagnosed, misunderstood and looking for help. Hope GB exists to provide support, encouragement and guidance to people from all walks of life that are affected by autism.
