Working with challenging behaviours on the autism spectrum

"working with challenging behaviours on the autism spectrum" a lecture by donna williams

Mon, 11th July 2011, Oxford

Donna Williams was in her usual sparkling form as she astonished many with her amazingly insightful and knowledgeable lecture on challenging behaviours.  The question and answer session was a real treat – with her professional and personal experiences lending a depth of understanding and has to be heard to be believed, she ably fielded questions from professionals and family members in the audience.

The compere for this event was our own James Rawlings, a local teenager with Asperger’s syndrome.  He was stunningly charming and funny, giving all the necessary information in an innovative, amusing fashion.

Our first speaker was Alicia Wengler another local teenager, who spoke movingly about how having Asperger’s syndrome affects her life – and how proud she is of being an Aspie.  She was engaging, confident, very competent and thoroughly interesting to listen to, illustrating her speech with stunning examples of her obvious talent in artwork.

What our audience said:

“Donna is the person to listen to where autism is concerned – she has taught me so much”
“Very interesting, best lecture I’ve ever been to – very exciting and informative”
“Brilliant – truly inspirational and thought provoking - explained a lot about my son”
“Fascinating and excellent at challenging stereotypes”
“Brilliant, I’ve worked with so many children with Asperger’s - always something new to learn. You have opened my eyes even further”.
