Supporting Adults with Autism
Top up your knowledge or Continuing Professional Development with a Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) free webinar Enabling Positive Lives for Autistic Adults running from 1300-1400 on Thursday 20 February. You can sign up for the webinar on the Eventbrite page.
Trevor Wright autism expert and co-chair of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) Autism Executive Board and Godfred Boahen Policy and Research Officer at the British Association of Social Workers (BASW) will host the webinar which will focus on how you can support adults with autism make decisions about their care as a social worker by communicating in a way that is responsive to the person’s preferences and needs. In addition the webinar will examine guidance by the DHSC (Think Autism Strategy: Governance Refresh 2018), the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (eg Autism Quality Standard QS51) and the BASW.
If you’d like to research the topic before the webinar take a look at the Enabling Positive Lives for Autistic Adults: Quick Guide for Social Workers and the material we have on our library catalogue
Don’t worry if you miss the webinar as a recording will go onto the SCIE and NICE websites afterwards. Incidentally SCIE and NICE have a YouTube channel of their podcasts you can use for learning more about autism, adult care and other topics.
