  • Description

    There has been a recent increase in awareness of the need for timely and appropriate diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in girls and young women. Without such a diagnosis and the relevant support systems being put in place, young women are at high risk of developing mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, self-harm and eating disorders.
    This 30-session programme aims to ensure that girls can and do develop good mental health including appropriate levels of autonomy, emotional resilience and open communication.
    This resource also includes a comprehensive PowerPoint Training Session for staff.
    The activities will:

    • Promote personal and social skills development
    • Develop self-esteem and self-awareness
    • Empower the exploration of healthy personal relationships
    • Encourage personal responsibility for keeping both mind and body safe and healthy
