Welcome to Autismine
For people who have autism, it can be difficult to read social situations. You can’t always tell what is expected of you, or what constitutes an appropriate response. Every social interaction has the potential to be confusing or upsetting. What’s more, the world is constantly changing. It’s hard to keep up with new expectations, new systems, new pressures. Families may feel this even more keenly when they have a child with autism.
Autismine develops interventions and coping strategies for children and young people who have autism. We harness technology and cognitive behavioural therapy to find ways to help them prepare for and navigate through everyday situations, as well as bigger events such as bereavement, family divorce or sibling rivalry. We can also help reduce the frustrations and misunderstandings that lead to challenging or socially inappropriate behaviour.
