Workshops & Presentations
As an educator, Paula can help those who live with or work with Autistic people to understand Autism from ‘the inside out’ and apply this knowledge to their existing skills to provide better support to Autistic people. “Lived experience” presentations aim to enhance the audiences understanding of Autism by explaining what Autism feels like. Paula explains Autism through the perspective of Autistic people and offers recommendations for how to approach supporting Autistic people from a strengths based perspective.
Paula has been giving ‘lived experience’ presentations for close to 10 years around New Zealand. She has spoken to parents of Autistic people, Autism organisations, disability organisations and professionals who work with Autistic people. She has given keynote presentations at Altogether Autism conferences and is respected as a knowledgeable speaker in the Autism sector.
Autism Insights can create a presentation or workshop tailored to your specific needs or choose from an existing topic.
Paula will soon be running regular events in Tauranga and Hamilton on a range of specific topics.
