Teenage Issues and Strategies

Emotional Wellbeing

Emotional wellbeing is important for healthy behaviours and educational attainment.


Employment is an important part of adult life.

Life Skills

Life skills are very complex tasks which require specific teaching and plenty of practice.

Relationships and Sexuality

Adolescence is one of the most important developmental stages, with significant changes occurring in the social, physical and emotional aspects of a person’s life.

School Life

Many teenagers can find the school environment challenging.

Social Skills and Friendships

Many young people with autism want to develop friendships and wish to have intimate relationships, yet may not innately have the skills to initiate social interaction, maintain and repair friendships or understand the social nuances and mores needed to form such relationships.


Transitions are a major part of everyday life for everyone.
