Auternative – Coaching People on the Autistic Spectrum
This Master Class challenges the prevailing paradigms for supporting people on the autistic spectrum, and shows how NLP tools and concepts can radically improve the results achieved. The content is based on modelling one of the country’s most effective autism coaches, Ruth Howard, and maps across how NLP techniques can be most effectively applied.
Coaching is a powerful tool, and has been found to be highly effective in helping autistic young people realise their aspirations. However, adjustments need to be made to the typical coaching process, and NLP can play a key role in this. In this we will introduce you to a set of cutting-edge principles proven to transform the wellbeing of autistic people and help them reach their potential.
The workshop will help participants to:
• Explore a new way of thinking about autism that helps create the space for positive development
• Learn how NLP techniques can be used to help autistic people reach their potential
• Challenge their own thinking around autism and learn strategies to encourage others to do the same
