The Autism Hub and ALAG invite you to join us for our online event on Autism and Pain Management
How autistic people perceive pain is not very well understood. Some people believe that autistic people may have a decreased sense of pain, but pain can manifest in different ways. This online event will explore:
- Lived experience of pain including co-occurring physical conditions
- Sensory overload and manifestation of pain
- Pain management & coping strategies
- Accessing pain management services ie. statutory pain clinic, exercise programmes etc.
The event will have a panel of contributors, discussing their own experience and idea for pain management. There will audience Q and A, allowing the opportunity for wider discussions.
This will be an online event only.
