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 that has been developed specifically for SSO’s and ESO’s who want a better understanding of autism and a range of effective strategies to use when supporting a student on the spectrum.

Supporting a student on the autism spectrum can be both challenging and very rewarding. This workshop recognises the important role of SSO’s and ESO’s within the educational sector. The program allows time for participants to share their ideas and successes, and network with other participants. Presented by professionals with significant experience working with individuals on the autism spectrum the topics covered include:

  • Understanding autism;
  • Developing a relationship with students;
  • The role of support staff and how to provide effective support;
  • Enhancing communication and social interaction;
  • Increasing student engagement;
  • Positive behaviour strategies when working 1:1, in groups and in the classroom;
  • Strategies to support sensory needs;
  • Support and services; and
  • How to look after your own needs on the job!

Throughout the workshop the presenter will use discussion, activities and videos

to deliver information specific to support staff working with students at both primary and secondary school, that will enhance the participant’s knowledge of autism and strategies to enable them to provide effective support and inclusion.
