RIGHTS-BASED TRAINING & MENTORING

Welcome to GET KONNECTED – our online program for professionals who support Autistic kids and teens socially.

GET KONNECTED is a unique neurodiversity-affirming answer to all the harmful & outdated social skills programs out there, designed and delivered by our award-winning trainers who are Autistic themselves. This course supports you to take a holistic and child-centred approach. 

 

A 5-day collaborative deep dive where we learn from each other and gain insights into the social experiences of Autistic kids and teens.

By exploring communication through Evaleen’s Six S’s of Social Interaction together we can find new ways to support our young clients.

Here are some ways you can stay connected:

Missed Time policy

1. If someone is going to be missing a day or part of a day, we will record the session(s) they are missing so that they can watch the recording and write up a 1,000-word summary of their understanding of the issues covered.

The recording is only made available to the participant(s) who have missed the time.

2. No more than a total of 1 day out of the whole course can be missed and compensated for in this way. Any further days missed have to be attended next time the course is run, in order to complete the course.
