AutismBC Workshop: What is Autism?

August 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

What is Autism?

Would you like to learn how to support someone on the autism spectrum better? Would you like to make your business or place of work more inclusive by becoming more sensory-friendly? Our What is Autism Workshop focuses on providing guidance and training around community inclusion. Over an hour, participants learn how community members on the autism spectrum may experience the world to increase autism awareness and acceptance.

We offer this workshop to build supportive, inclusive communities for all autistic people. We want to see the world where community accommodations are commonplace, and community spaces are designed to support all neurotypes.

Guided by insights from autism service providers, parents of autistic children, and autistic self-advocates, our training tackles essential questions, such as:

  • What is Autism?
  • How many people in BC are on the Autism spectrum?
  • What does AutismBC do?
  • How and why can my workplace offer simple accommodations to be more inclusive?
  • We will discuss all of these questions and more!

Join us for a 30-minute introduction session and 30 minutes of questions. Extend the invitation to your co-workers, family, and friends — all are welcome!

Additionally, Throughout our session, you will:

  • Expand your awareness about autism and the ways autistic people might experience the world.
  • Gain insight into how you may offer accommodations or alter environments to provide support.

Individuals come together for regular sessions, engaging in various ways. They can participate by listening attentively, asking questions, or sharing a unique accommodation they have developed and believe others should adopt. Through collective efforts, we strive to enhance social inclusion within the autistic community throughout British Columbia.
