Join Dr. Yona Lunsky, as she introduces the concept of mindfulness and acceptance relating to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In this webinar, Dr. Lunsky will focus on mindfulness and acceptance, and will highlight key themes discovered through parent focused projects. Whether you are a newbie when it comes to mindfulness or someone with extensive experience, this interactive webinar is sure to be inspiring!

This webinar will be presented in English but supporting documentation is available in French.
Yona Lunsky nous entretiendra principalement du concept de « pleine conscience » et de l’acceptation en lien avec le trouble du spectre de l’autisme (TSA), et nous décrira les principaux thèmes mis en lumière dans le cadre de projets centrés sur les parents. Que le concept de pleine conscience soit nouveau pour vous ou que vous le connaissiez très bien, tant en théorie qu’en pratique, ce webinaire interactif sera à coup sûr une expérience inspirante!

À noter: Ce webinar sera animé en anglais mais les documents de cours seront disponibles en français.

Autism: See the Potential

This video, which features the incredible Michael McCreary, is a wonderful introduction to autism spectrum disorder. The video was created to support customer service professionals when they provide services or support to people with ASD; however the positive response from the general public has been overwhelming. This video is so accessible and entertaining, it offers something for everyone.
