Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder:

Practical Strategies for Teachers

22 & 23 May 2018

Why Autism Spectrum Disorder?

As more children are being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), mainstream teachers are increasingly expected to provide appropriate support for students with complex learning needs within mainstream classes. Students with ASD often require support to cope with the social demands of the classroom and playground, deal with change, avoid sensory overload,and achieve their full learning potential.

Who should attend?

Teachers and teachers' aides who want to learn and share practical strategies which benefit students with ASD in the classroom and the playground.  Psychologists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists who would like practical strategies for their clients with autism are also very welcome to attend.  

Why this workshop?

Emphasis is placed on understanding how students with ASD perceive the world differently, and how this impacts on their behaviour at school. Participants are encouraged to make subtle changes to their interaction and intervention style to reduce students' anxiety and prevent challenging behaviours. Participants will practice their skills by responding to scenarios in small groups. Course notes include visual aids and proformas that can be adapted to suit your own students.
