7.30pm Main Event

Sensory Processing

This month we welcome Jo Mengell from the Community Adult Asperger's Service (CAAS), who will be talking about sensory processing.

Jo says:

I am an Occupational Therapist working for Dorset HealthCare Trust for the past 19 years. Throughout my career I have enjoyed working with people with Autism Spectrum Conditions, both with and without a learning disability. I have been working in CAAS for the past 5 years, I shared at interview that working with people with Asperger’s Syndrome in CAAS would be my dream job, and I have not been disappointed! My talk will be about how sensory issues can impact people with Asperger’s Syndrome and will include some strategies for coping with this impact.
And Finally ..... Time to network, chat, seek advice or help, bring news to the group etc.
End of meeting Grateful thanks for helping us ready the Café for the following morning :)
