Spectacular Girls™ Well-being Workshops BE UNIQUE
Spectacular Girls Well-being Workshops have been sensitively designed to improve the well-being and mental health of autistic girls aged 11-16 (diagnosed, non diagnosed and on the autism pathway) and have been created by an autism specialist teacher with over 20 years experience of teaching autistic children.
Workshops enable participants to explore a range of topics , highly important to autistic girls, not generally covered in the school curriculum. Workshops encourage girls to develop greater self-awareness and understanding to build positive self-identities, essential to their well-being. Workshops are suitable for autistic girls who attend mainstream or other settings due to content. This workshop focusses on identity (‘BE UNIQUE’) by exploring the skills, strengths and interests of participants and allows children to consider how best to manage daily challenges. It is the first in a series of six workshops.
Activities are varied (some are practical) and those taking part are always prepared in advance to reduce anxiety. Each workshop follows a schedule and lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes.Workshop numbers are purposely kept to a minimum of 8 children (with at least 2 workshop facilitators) so that children can feel more comfortable. Girls will receive an Information Booklet that answers the questions they may have before attending to enable them to feel more comfortable about coming.
