Lecturer practitioner Andrew Bagnall conducts a study day
Atlas: Autism and Childhood Bereavement

4pm - Wednesday 22nd May 2019, at Compton Care Learning and Development Centre

This twilight workshop is aimed at anyone working with children professionally who is interested in learning different communication and support strategies that may be more effective with bereaved children (or those facing bereavement) who are on the autism spectrum.

Autistic children may find the more typical ways of responding to bereavement confusing or distressing, and a practical and cognitive approach with autistic pupils may make managing a bereavement easier.

Through presentations and discussions, this short workshop gives an overview of how to support an autistic child, and empower other pupils and teachers to be supportive too at times of bereavement.

Ideally you will have completed our ‘Helping Bereaved Children’ introductory course as this provides a foundation in how loss impacts on childhood development, which is a key factor in effective childhood bereavement management.

Target audience

All those who work in schools, community, health and social care with children

Cost

£20.00 (Free to school staff) To include lunch and refreshments, and certificate of attendance.

Time

16:00 – 18:00

Venue

Compton Learning and Development Centre, The Cedars, 39 Compton Road West, Wolverhampton, WV3 9DW.
