All participants will receive a certificate with the workshop title, the number of hours and will state that the training links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (where appropriate).
This is a General Workshop for professionals who work with people on the autism spectrum and want a better understanding of autism to assist in improved outcomes for the people they support.
Presented by a consultant with many years’ experience supporting individuals on the spectrum, this session outlines the diagnostic criteria and explores the unique characteristics of autism including, Asperger’s syndrome.
Upon completion, participants will better understand the profile of an individual on the spectrum, including their strengths and challenges.
Throughout the workshop the presenter will use discussion, activities, videos and lived experiences to deliver information that will enhance the participant’s knowledge of people on the spectrum across all age groups.
