Date: 8 December 2015
Location: BG11, Bournemouth House, Lansdowne Campus
“Autism is characterised as a disability with difficulties relating to social and sensory fluency”
“Disability is an unfortunate word because many interpret it to mean that a person with a disability isincompetent. However, what disabled really means is: not functioning as expected.” (Denyse King)
In this lunch break sized talk Denyse King explains what difficulties in social and sensory fluency really means in relation to working in health and social care, and explores how someone who functions differently is able to work as effectively as other colleagues in this diverse field.
