Event description

Description

Recent data obtained by the Australian Bureau of Statistics indicate that 1 in every 52 Australian primary school age children will be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in their childhood. In past years, ASD was a much less commonly encountered disorder. However in the modern classroom, it has become commonplace for teachers and learning support teams to adjust their teaching approach and environment to cater for an increasing number of students on the spectrum.

Join us for an in-depth, candid and insightful look at the most common challenges that a classroom teacher may face when working with a child living with ASD, and learn the practical strategies that can be implemented in your classroom to enable these amazing children to be successful. In this 2-part seminar, Sam Gourley (Paediatric Occupational Therapist) will comprehensively review the key concepts and practical strategies for supporting students with ASD in the classroom, including:

- Understanding how ASD presents

- Social Communication Issues and Restricted Repetitive Behaviours

- Managing Expectations from Stakeholders

- Sensory Processing Challenges

- Supporting Self-Regulation

- Determining the Function of Problem Behaviours

- Positive Behaviour Support Plans

- Working with Parents and Allied Health Professionals Effectively

- What to do when nothings working!

This seminar is suitable for all primary and early childhood educators, tertiary education students, school officers, learning support teams, and allied health professionals supporting primary school aged children with an interest in participation in mainstream schooling. Discounted tickets are available for Uni Students.

Upon completion of the 2-day seminar, all attendees will recieve a certificate of participation stating completion of 4 hours of professional development which can be used as evidence of PD activity undertaken for professional registration purposes. Only 70 places are available for this seminar series so dont miss out!
