Event Details

About the workshop:

This practical and interactive workshop focuses on supporting children with special needs, be it Autism Spectrum Disorders, developmental delays, intellectual and/or physical disabilities. Educators will be provided a range of hands-on, fun and engaging activities, as well as tools and strategies to support children to play and learn effectively, communicate their needs, and achieve their goals.

Topics covered:

  • Who are children with special needs?
  • What is sensory processing?
  • Communication needs
  • Understanding behaviour
  • Setting children up for success
  • Who, how, and why seek specialist support?

Learning outcomes:

  • Skills and ability to create learning opportunities that encourage positive engagement and meaningful play
  • Knowledge on specialist assessment and intervention

Educator’s toolkit – the nuts and bolts:

  • We will arm you with a highly practical toolkit to ensure you can put everything you learn into practice.

Who should attend:

  • This workshop will be presented by Jasmine Wallace, a psychologist who has extensive experience in the areas of child development, developmental delays, and transdisciplinary intervention.

What educators are saying:
