Event description
Learn how to support communication in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

About this Event

Our Workshop will assist in understanding and supporting communication in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Communication includes skills such as speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, socialisation, fluency and using voice to communicate.

Children with ASD often face vastly different communication challenges. Some may have no spoken language skills or visual response to speech. Others may have stronger language skills but have difficulty with conversations, expressing feelings and making friends.

This Workshop will cover:

• Understanding typical language development

• Identifying potential communication difficulties from an early age

• Supporting and promoting communication in the home, school environment and wider community

• Identifying when a child would benefit from intervention and further support

• Clinical strategies and intervention for delayed communication

• Implementing strategies to assist parents, carers and teachers to support communication

This Workshop is suitable for parents of children on the spectrum, as well as complimentary service providers, clinical professionals or carers working with these children.

Presented by Caitlin Kennedy, Speech Therapist.
