The Curly Hair Project workshops are ideal for those who care for, teach, live or work with children and adults with Asperger’s or other ASDs, and meet Continuing Professional Development criteria. They are also great for those with an ASD or anyone who is simply interested in knowing more. Written by the brilliant author Alis Rowe – ‘the girl with the curly hair’ - they last around 2 ½ hours and are relaxed, informative and uplifting with lots of great images to explain things. Please see the attached flier for more information.

 

Workshop information: Tickets are £15 per person (+booking fees) and can be purchased at http://thegirlwiththecurlyhair.co.uk/events/ where more information about the Curly Hair Project can also be found.
