ASD and Socialising – The Curly Hair Project in Edinburgh Apr 24



This workshop looks at the triad of impairments and therefore why socialising may be hard for someone with ASD and how it can be made easier. This workshop covers the following topics:

  • the triad of impairments
  • understanding the individual’s intrinsic capacity and natural desire for socialising
  • strategies to make social situations easier
  • what difference does it make whether you are an introvert or an extrovert?

You will receive a certificate of attendance.


  • individuals on the spectrum
  • parents
  • teachers and other professionals

This workshop is relevant to both males and females.


“Finding out about social energy was a light bulb moment!”

“I realised how important it is to find out about social energy and the balance, so as not to end up on a negative.”

“I was very interested in introversion and extroversion and how they affect the way our autism is expressed.”

“I have Asperger’s and find many things a struggle, especially the social aspects. I often feel isolated, lonely, depressed and angry but it was such a help listening to Alis and her own experiences which are similar to mine and I understood it all which made me feel a little better I’m myself.”

If numbers for this workshop are low, we will have no choice but to cancel it. Please check your email inbox and spam one or two days before the workshop is due to run as we will send you an email if it has been cancelled.

No refunds unless the workshop is cancelled.
