About this Event

Please come and join us for a full day of education and networking. You will gain skills, strategies and a better understanding of the needs of Autistic children and young people. This Autism workshop series will be presented by our expert team of therapists and is suitable for families with a child on the spectrum as well as carers and professionals working with children on the spectrum.

WORKSHOP 1: Anxiety and Autism Workshop

Anxiety is common in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

This workshop will cover what anxiety is, some of our understanding of why it is common in children with Autism and how we can help children with Autism to manage their anxiety effectively.

WORKSHOP 2 : Challenging Behaviours in Daily Life

This workshop will equip parents and carers with a better understanding of Autism in children and help them to understand the function & purpose of everyday behaviours.

It will provide practical strategies to managing these complex behaviours in a variety of settings and will be useful for teachers and assistants to implement in the classroom.

WORKSHOP 3 : Social Skills and Autism

Communication is defined as the imparting or exchanging of information by speaking, writing, or using some other medium. It is a social act requiring at least one other person, which is an area which many individuals with an Autism find quite challenging.

Individuals with Autism have varying language skills (i.e. some use full sentences, others use short phrases); however, all individuals present with some deficits in their social communication skills. This impacts on an Individual’s ability to participate in meaningful interactions with their family, peers and others.

This workshop will focus specifically on social communication including conversation on what it is and the difficulties it can present for children with Autism on a daily basis across a range of environments such as kinder, school, home and in the community.

The aim of this workshop is to enable participants to better understand the early development of social communication skills and the impacts that defi¬cits in this area can have on a child’s ability to interact effectively with peers, form friendships and participate fully in social contexts. Participants will also be introduced to strategies that will support and promote the development of social communication skills in pre-school and primary school-aged children.
