In May, Imagining Autism invited members of the public to experience the tools and techniques we use through a series of training sessions, before they were given the opportunity to try their newly found skills out in a session with families. This was part of the Imagining Autism for Families project. Trainees were a mixture of parents, family members, professionals, students and those who identified as being on the autistic spectrum. Sessions were run in perceiving differently, clowning, ensemble and puppetry. Here is a photo of some of our trainees having a go at the puppetry, using soft toys.
