In our Health & Hygiene in the Home webinar held in September 2023 we:

  • Explored ideas relating to health and hygiene in the home
  • Explored structure and routine as a way to support individuals to stay healthy at home
  • Explored how the characteristics of autism may impact on an individual’s understanding and experiences with their own health and hygiene
  • Explored ideas to establish and support positive sleep, physical activity and hygiene habits
