Developing self-regulation in people with autism - Professional Development In Focus Workshop - NETLEY
Date and Time
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.
General Workshops are designed to give participants a better understanding of autism. They present a broad range of effective strategies that participants can use to improve their practice when working with individuals on the spectrum. These workshops are suited to participants who have not attended previous Autism SA workshops.
In Focus Workshops are designed for participants who have a good general knowledge and understanding of autism. These sessions are for those wanting to enhance their professional practice by developing skills to support individuals in specific areas relating to autism. It is recommended that participants first attend a General Workshop prior to attending an In Focus Workshop.
Developing self-regulation in people with autism is essential for success in the home, community and educational settings. This session, presented by an experienced Autism Consultant, will outline what self-regulation is, why self-regulation is so important, and how we can realistically and practically enhance self-regulation to improve the quality of life for a person on the autism spectrum.
The focus of the workshop will be on the three core components of self-regulation;
• Executive Functioning (self-control);
• Sensory Regulation; and
• Emotional Regulation.
Throughout the workshop the presenter will use discussion, activities and videos to deliver information specific to this topic that will enhance the participants’ knowledge of autism and provide strategies in relation to self-regulation, to enable them to give effective support, inclusion and outcomes.
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).
