Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a seminar presented by Rhona Bolger, registered home educator, early childhood education support teacher, and director of Alyssa's Autism Acceptance Project, a non-profit organisation named after Rhona's daughter that visits schools all over WA to talk about life on the autism spectrum.

In this seminar, Rhona will present information on common challenges faced by students on the autism spectrum, both inside and outside of the classroom,and will discuss effective ways for schools to support the individual needs of students, and their families within the school community. Rhona will also detail her own personal experience with sensory processing difficulties, and provide strategies that have been successful for both herself and her children. She will also give insight into the positive and negative experiences she has had with navigating the education system for her children, and provide guidance to educators on how to develop effective relationships with families.
