Feedback from Tony Attwood Presentation - Trish Jubb
This month we welcome Trish Jubb. Trish has recently taken over as chairperson of the DAAS Group and is also on the committee for Autscape, the autistic run conference. She’ll be giving a presentation about a talk by Tony Attwood that she attended. Tony is an Australian expert in Asperger’s and wrote an influential guidebook to Asperger’s Syndrome at a time when people weren’t talking about it much. Trish will share her impressions of the event and what she learned that relates to many people on the spectrum. She'll particularly talk about managing anxiety, behaviour and sensory processing difficulties There will be an opportunity to discuss further and share experiences for those who wish to do so.

And Finally ..... Time to network, chat, seek advice or help, bring news to the group etc.
