Event description

Description

This workshop is aimed at Teachers and Integration Aides at Primary School level.

Supports, Strategies and Interventions for Assisting Anxious ASD Students at School. Join us as we learn from Gillian Hanna, Psychologist, from Logos Pscyhology Clinic and Monash University.

Teachers and Aides often have students with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in their classrooms who appear anxious throughout their school day. These students can have such intense anxiety that it can disrupt the entire classroom or even a whole school assembly. No teacher, parent or student wants to experience those anxious moments. Teachers would always rather see their students having successful, meaningful and fun experiences at school and want to provide their students with an ASD the proper supports. The barriers to learning and social interaction that anxiety can create suggest that effective anxiety-related interventions and supports are crucial tools for those working with children who have and ASD, and for the children themselves.

This workshop aims to:

(1) explore the nature, causes and impact of anxiety on students with an ASD.

(2) provide helpful and practical anxiety management support strategies and

(3) practical interventions to assist anxious ASD students as they navigate their way through school.

Doors open at 6:40pm for a 7pm start.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation for their Professional Development portfolios.

Parking is available on site and also at the complex next door. Please allow yourself extra time to park so that you can register and enter without parking stress.
