Geoff Evans and Dean Beadle will be joining us to talk about Autistic Happiness.
10.30-12.30: Geoff Evans
Autism the happiness factor
In this talk, Geoff makes a case for moving away from the simple needs led approaches that currently influence assessment, care and provisions for autistic individuals towards one that also includes happiness, meaningful lives and wellbeing. Following a discussion on the evidence for such an approach, Geoff will explore what gets in the way of happiness, assessing for happiness, and specific areas where happiness can be promoted and practical ways of achieving this. The talk will include suggestions for developing a happiness profile with or for your child and a variety of other useful ideas.
1.15-3.15: Dean Beadle (click here)
