Autism: Beyond The Diagnosis – Foundational Family Service

This 2½-hour workshop teaches parents and caregivers strategies and tools to help their children and youth understand their diagnosis, using a strengths-based approach. Explaining and answering questions related to a diagnosis may be a lifelong discussion and difficult to navigate. Autism: Beyond the Diagnosis incorporates the research of Dr. Peter Vermeulen, related to helping persons with ASD understand themselves and their respective diagnosis. Dr. Peter Vermeulen is an author, lecturer and consultant in the field of Autism.

As a result of participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • list key components of discussing a diagnosis
  • apply a positive strengths-based approach to discussions with persons with ASD regarding their diagnosis
  • describe why a positive strengths-based approach is important
