There’s peer pressure, mean girls, queen bees, the onslaught of social media, bullying, body shaming, school stress, oh and let’s not forget puberty. Periods, body hair, mood swings. Puberty is a tricky time for any girl to navigate – the rapid rate of changes in both her body and mind can be confusing, overwhelming, and yes, even a little scary.
As if that wasn’t enough to deal with, being a girl with autism or a developmental issue can make these issues even more challenging. WELL Girls is a personal life skills program.
Created by an Occupational Therapist experienced in both women’s health and paediatrics, WELL Girls aims to equip girls with the essential knowledge and confidence they require to manage their own personal health, and unique wellbeing needs.

 

Female health and wellbeing is a diverse topic – there are many wellbeing considerations that are unique to females in the pre-teen age group and impact how we live our lives.ย 

In this nine week program the subjects we cover include:

  • menstruation and pelvic health – understanding and functionally managing periods and building good toileting and pelvic health habits for life.
  • body development and personal hygiene – What’s happening to my body and why? How do I care for it?
  • hormonal changes of puberty – and how these affect us physically and
    emotionally at this time of life,
  • friends, frenemies and bullies

ย 

 

โ€˜Well Girls’ is suitable for girls aged 8-16 with an Autism Spectrum Disorder who are starting out on their Well Girls journey.
In WELL Girls we present this information in a developmentally appropriate manner, which supports girls with autism or developmental delay to learn at their own pace, and in their own way.
