Teaching basic emotional literacy is becoming increasingly common in Australian primary schools. However, this is only the first step towards emotional intelligence. How can we build on these foundations as students mature into high school and adulthood?

Managing social interactions with other human beings is an incredibly complex task. For Autistic people this means that having well developed Emotional Intelligence skills is not just a luxury but rather a matter of survival.

This presentation shares the work of Emotions Explained, providing autistic adults and teenagers with practical ways to improve their Emotional Intelligence skills. What works? What doesn’t? What are the biggest questions we need to be asking ourselves?

The Non-Autistic population also has a lot to learn when it comes to emotions and in that sense we’re all in this together. How do Autistic people train the Non-Autistic people around them? How can we all grow in emotional awareness and improve our communication skills to bridge the gap in the neurodiversity spectrum?

Key Learning Objectives: Reasons why Emotional Intelligence is important, key focus areas for student to grow in emotional maturity, simple techniques for adults to lead by example and improve their own emotional intelligence.
