Tailored training workshops to develop knowledge and understanding in themes related to autism.
The training workshops are interactive, informative and can be adapted or combined to meet the unique needs and requirements of your school or service.
Training workshops can be provided separate from, or as part of, outreach visits.
Outcome: Gain knowledge about autism and the three key areas of need. Learn practical strategies of how you can help and support.
Outcome: Understand the different functions of behaviour and why individuals may behave in a particular way. Gain knowledge of practical strategies to proactively prevent challenging behaviour.
Inclusive Teaching Strategies
Outcome: Gain knowledge of different inclusive teaching strategies that will support the various learning needs in a classroom, as well as promote independence and reduce anxiety. This includes effective use of visual and multi-sensory learning supports, transition supports, communication development and emotional regulation strategies.
Outcome: Learn how to support transitions and understanding effectively, resulting in reduced anxiety (and less challenging behaviour). Learn practical strategies to support everyday transitions as well as to prepare for big changes, such as moving to a new school.
Time to discuss and reflect on personal situations, in order to develop specific support strategies, as often a very personalised approach needs to take place to effectively support autistic individuals. This can be explored together as one small group or multiple small groups, depending on number of participants.
