Choose one or more of the following workshops to include in your training package. Sessions are usually delivered after hours, and typically run for 2-hours; however, content and timeframes can be adjusted based on the needs of your team, and the children in their care.
Understanding the Autism Spectrum
Increase your knowledge, skills, and confidence to support children with Autism in education and care, or other early childhood settings.
Understanding Autism, and how it may impact participation and learning.
Strategies to support children with Autism and their families.
Positive behaviour support
Explore a child centered framework that supports challenging behaviour by finding the underlying need, or purpose it serves the child. Learn to analyse your observations, and plan strategies that focus on meeting children’s needs, teaching required skills, and creating environments that set children up for success.
Sensory processing & regulation
Build your understanding of all the senses and how our bodies process and respond to stimuli differently. Learn how sensory processing can impact the way children act, play, engage, and learn. Explore different ways to embed whole-group and individualised strategies to support self-regulation, engagement, and learning.
Play & social skills
In order to learn through play, children need to know how to play. Reflect on the developmental stages and types of play, and consider how the impact of Autism can affect learning. Explore ways to build joint attention, extend play skills and foster social skill development for children with Autism.
Implementing visual aids
Learn more about different types of visual aids, and ways to use them to support different needs. Explore ways to use visual supports consistently as a team, and as part of daily routines to support communication, improve participation, and foster independence for a range of children.
