Understanding and Supporting Students with Autism in the Mainstream Classroom
This workshop will introduce participants to the characteristics of autism identified in children.
Participants will recognise how autism is likely to manifest in the mainstream classroom and gain teaching strategies for managing likely behaviours and learning characteristics.
The workshop will cover:
- The history of autism
- Diagnosis and treatment
- Current cognitive assessments and theories in autism
- Classroom strategies to support effective learning and behaviour.
Participants will discuss real-world scenarios they have experienced and will be offered an opportunity to discuss and problem-solve specific student behaviours in their own context.
