THIS WORKSHOP IS BEING HELD IN ALICE SPRINGS
Autism SA has developed a workshop based on Kari Dunn Buron and Mitzi Curtis truly incredible ‘The Incredible 5-Point Scale’ program. The two special education teachers designed a program ‘that “talks in numbers” rather than in socially and emotionally laden words’ (Buron, Curtis, 2003). Autism SA staff have widely used the program in a range of environments and have found it to be highly effective.
This workshop includes-
The philosophy behind the program
Looking at the resources
Overview of the program, including hands-on activities
