Understanding autism and effective strategies to support for Early Years Educators - Professional Development General 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. These sessions 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 is a General Workshop which has been developed specifically 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.
Presented by an Autism Consultant with significant experience in working in the early years setting with children with autism, the topics covered include;
• Understanding autism;
• The early indicators of autism;
• Diagnostic process in SA;
• Services and available support;
• Setting up supportive environments;
• Setting up successful transitions;
• 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 the participant’s knowledge of autism and strategies to enable them to provide effective support and inclusion for children with autism.
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).
