Understanding and meeting the needs of students with autism can be challenging. It is important for teachers, school staff and other professionals to be continuously supported to develop their knowledge about autism, including strategies that can benefit them in their work with students with autism.
This individualised and hands on three-part short course will focus on furthering understanding of autism and practical strategies to meet the needs of students with autism.
The course will be valuable to teachers currently in the classroom, pre-service teachers, and education and health professionals who work with children with ASD.
This short course is interactive and experiential and participants will receive:
- 12 contact hours of instruction
- an additional Saturday morning excursion to observe a successful strength-based program designed specifically to support adolescents with ASD.
- individualised content – each participant will receive individual support from experts in this field to develop and implement an individualised support plan for a specific student.
- a certificate of professional learning.
The three sessions will be held on Wednesday 13 November, Wednesday 4 December and Wednesday 11 December 2019.
Please note: you are required to attend all three days for this short course.
