The purpose of this workshop is to equip participants with specific skills and strategies to make the teenage years a success. Autistic teens use specific coping strategies to cope with having autism. The coping styles and the implications of these for understanding, teaching, parenting and managing autistic teens are described. The presenters will focus on a range of areas known to be important to autistic teenagers including the transition into high school, the learning profile and specific strategies to encourage academic and social success, the management of anxiety, stress, anger and depression, friendships, relationships and sexuality, what to do about bullying, and transition into a career.
