Supporting Autistic Children’s Wellbeing & Emotional Health
DATE: Monday, 20 March 2023
TIME: 7pm - 8pm
Supporting Autistic children's physical, mental and emotional health is crucial if we want our children to have a solid foundation to grow and develop to their full potential. All children want to learn techniques to regulate themselves so they can feel calm inside their own bodies. All children can learn to their full potential and be happy in themselves when they feel calm and relaxed. Participants will be shown a variety of ways to use visual prompts to support children’s well-being.
During the talk participants will be shown
This webinar will cover how important self-care is for all parents as our children pick up on our energy and wellbeing in our homes. Calmness in our homes starts with us the parents and that is not always easy. The webinar will finish with a relaxation for adults to support your self-care.
My name is Una Curran and I teach Mindfulness and Well-being to children, teenagers and adults in a variety of settings. I am a parent to three children and my background is in Primary schools as a classroom teacher in London, Support teacher with children with social, emotional and behaviour needs in Dublin 8, supporting children on a 1:1 in pre-schools and in my own Well-being therapy room.
My eldest daughter is Autistic and has taught me many ways to see the World from a different point of view. This has helped support my teaching and learning techniques in various ways. I have taught many Autistic children and young people in school settings, Community groups and privately 1:1. Each Autistic child and young person I meet teaches me something new and supports me awareness of the Sensory world we live in.
The programme that I have put together and teach in Pre-schools, Primary & Secondary schools, Community groups is based on my teaching experience in a variety of educational settings, being a parent and my professional training over many years. I have found that some children need movement to regulate and some need stillness as our sensory bodies are all unique. By offering different techniques each child should learn a technique that helps calm their own body and mind. My aim is to plant the seeds of well-being early and that children will use the techniques independently when they need it in school and at home.
