The programme has been developed by The National Autistic Society to help you to understand more about how autism is experienced by autistic teenagers. Topics covered include self-esteem, spending time with other people, stress and anxiety, behaviour, puberty, independence skills, education strategies and planning for the future. Teen Life also aims to promote a consistent approach by encouraging parents to attend the sessions with a professional who is working regularly with their child.
Teen Life information sessions provide parents with more in depth knowledge of the 6 session programme, the dates of the next programme and how to apply.
To attend an upcoming information session please register with the parenting support service.
