Event description

Autism SA has a highly experienced and diverse training team which includes consultants, occupational therapists, speech pathologists and facilitators who have extensive experience in working with individuals on the autism spectrum in a range of settings.

Autism SA presents training that is hands-on, practical and engaging. The emphasis is on guiding participants through a range of activities to increase their knowledge, understanding and confidence in implementing relevant intervention strategies for their particular setting.

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 which has been developed for early years professionals, including preschool, kindergarten or childcare educators who want a better understanding of autism and a range of effective strategies to support children on the autism spectrum. 

Presented by a consultant with significant experience in working in the early years setting, the topics covered include:

• Understanding autism;
• The early indicators of autism;
• The diagnostic process in SA;
• Services and support available;
• Setting up successful transitions;
• Setting up supportive environments;
• How to teach a new skill;
• Positive behaviour support strategies;
• Identifying and supporting sensory needs; and
• Case studies.

Throughout the workshop the presenter will use discussion, activities and videos to deliver information specific to the early years setting that will enhance participant’s knowledge of autism, and strategies that enable them to provide effective support and inclusion for children with autism.
