Inside Out View of Autism Spectrum Disorder with Bill Nason
We were thrilled to have Bill Nason present at this comprehensive and inspiring workshop. We had participants from PEI, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta. Bill's presentation was indeed an "inside out view" of autism spectrum disorder and we are already talking about having him come back.
Thank you to Caroline Morden and M&R Catering for the excellent snacks and meals.
I attended the Inside Out conference with Bill Nason with my son's teacher. It was so informative that I will be busy for the next 6 months researching topics 💙. Bill explained and validated (via confirmation from actual ASD adults) his practices. He never preached or peddled his book; he simply used layman's terms to help the audience to better understand ASD in a way that just made sense and left you wondering why you never thought of that. The conference was invaluable and worth taking vacation days to attend!
My son's teacher learned so much that his behaviours make sense to her now. She also took away sensory best practices to implement in the school for neurotypical children too to help the focus and be ready to learn!
I really enjoyed Bill Nason’s workshop. It truly was an inside out view of Autism. I was really able to gain a deeper understanding of how my children experience the world. He really talked a lot about how a child on the Autism Spectrum cannot begin to change behaviour until they feel safe and accepted and have a nervous system that is regulated. He ran the workshop like a discussion which made it interesting as I could also learn from other’s experiences. The funny thing is that not only did I learn more about my children with Autism, but I learned more about myself – I wasn’t expecting that! I would love to attend another one of his workshops in the future.
Bill has so much knowledge and I am very thankful that I was able to attend his workshop. I have followed him on Facebook for awhile and I am so glad I was actually able to meet him and listen to him talk. His workshop was amazing! I highly recommend it. I am hoping he comes back as I would love to hear more! Thanks Bill for all that you do and for being you!
