The aim is to look at the physical and medical alternatives that an autistic young person might be communicating through their behaviour that is assumed to be self-harm. In many cases, it is not self-harm as we know it but the young person’s attempt to communicate a medical condition or a problem with a person, place, or thing.
This workshop looks at all the possible alternatives and allows the parent/carer to be accurate in supporting the young person.
