Your questions answered (and more):

  • How do I engage with learners who are reluctant to enter the classroom, engage in group activities, or attempt written work?
  • How do I prevent and respond to children running from the room, hiding under the desk, hitting others, or being the 'playground policeman'?
  • What role does sensory sensitivity play for students with autism in the classroom and the playground, and how can we work around this?
  • What visual supports and strategies can I use to increase predictability and decrease anxiety?
  • How can I include visual learning strategies in my whole class programming, rather than seeing autism strategies as something extra on top of my usual program?
  • What can I do with students who don't talk at all?  How can I understand the triggers for their behaviour?
  • How can I support high school students to be more independent and take responsibility for their own learning?
  • When and how should I teach social skills, and when should we accept that older students have chosen not to spend time with their peers?
  • How can I support parents to consider having their child assessed for autism?
  • When should a child be told about their diagnosis, and when and how do I explain autism to the rest of the class?
  • How can I encourage my fellow staff members to try autism strategies?

This workshop will contribute 6 hours of Self Identified PD addressing 1.5.2, 4.1.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation.
