About the Event
Join us for this webinar on Establishing Good Routines & De-Escalating Meltdown Situations with Autistic speaker, writer and parent Pete Wharmby.
Being an Autistic parent to an Autistic child isn't always easy as sensory traits can clang against each other at times, during this webinar. Pete will explore ways to try and predict where these clashes will take place, to support you in pre-empting and avoiding the conditions that can lead to meltdown.
