Could it Be Autism?
Understanding, assessing and supporting adults with autism
Common reasons for adults presenting with questions around neurodiversity include having a child diagnosed with autism, relationship difficulties, workplace difficulties and more.
Furthermore, many clinicians suspect neurodiversity may be behind some or most of the challenges a client may be facing.
But unlike children, adult autism can be much more subtle to detect due to masking and accommodations developed by necessity throughout the client's life.
This workshop focusses upon helping to understand the core features of autism, how to recognise them irrespective of gender, as well as some strategies that can help in relationships, the workplace and at home.

About Matthew's Workshops
I started training other professionals in 2004 when I started teaching ‘Addiction Counselling’ at Swinburne University in Melbourne, and found then that I have a real passion for this part of my work.
I went on to develop and run workshops during my time as Training Manager for Caraniche, and continue today in my private practice, and through the APS, Hurstwood Clinic and other organisations.
I am also privileged to have been invited to deliver keynotes for a wide variety of conferences throughout Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
