    Peter Vermeulen's on-demand webinar on Autism and Friendship: getting and staying connected will take place on Wednesday 28 April. For Autistic people and their families.

    One of the biggest misunderstandings about autism is that autistic people lack social motivation and want to be on their own. Autistic people have a need for connectedness, just like all other human beings. However, getting connected and staying connected is quite a challenge for them. Many of the relational skills and knowledge that neurotypical people seem to develop effortlessly and spontaneously are clogged by the way an autistic brain understands the world.

    In this webinar on autism and friendship, exploring the challenges autistic people face in making friends and keeping them and how they experience friendship. Some strategies for teaching and supporting them in the area of friendship will be addressed. In particular, we will focus on the importance of clarifying for autistic people the abstract, vague and context sensitive rules and ingredients of friendship. 

    Register here to receive the link to the webinar which will be emailed to you on 28 April.
