Increasing engagement through work, rewards and breaks - 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.
This In Focus Workshop is designed for professionals who have a solid understanding of autism and want specific relevant, practical strategies to further support them when working with an individual on the spectrum. This workshop defines the clear difference between ‘work’, ‘rewards’ and ‘breaks’, and how important it is in motivating and meeting the needs of all people on the spectrum.
The presenter will explicitly identify how to gather this information and how to order activities to maximise motivation and ensure individuals on the spectrum can succeed to the best of their ability. By utilising personal schedules, the fine balance between ‘work’, ‘breaks’ and ‘rewards’ can be clearly communicated and can increase motivation and independence in all educational settings.
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).
