Understanding Autism - 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 for anyone who wants a better understanding of autism and how the characteristics of autism can change the way an individual interacts and response to those around them.
With more than 15,000 individuals with an autism diagnosis in South Australia, this session will provide participants with a better understanding of the autism spectrum across the developmental ages, and how autism impacts an individual’s everyday life. Using discussions, activities, videos and lived experiences, participants will better understand this complex neurological difference, and how it can impact on an individual’s everyday functional skills.
With a greater understanding of autism, participants will begin to be able to identify practical strategies and supports that can be put in place to enhance an individual’s skills and achieve personal goals.
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).
