Australian Professional Standards for Teachers 1.5, 1.6 and 4.1 will be a main focus during this workshop.

Having an Autistic student in your class can be a baffling, challenging and an often frustrating occurrence but it can be a totally different and rewarding experience with a little bit of knowledge and a range of quite simple strategies This workshop investigates the major dynamics of having an Autistic child in a mainstream classroom and provides a simple proven framework to help teachers successfully teach all students in their class.

The workshop includes:

  • The rise of Autism in Australian mainstream classrooms.
  • Understanding Autism, the patterns and commonalities and the exceptions
  • How to differentiate instruction to meet specific learning needs of autistic students.
  • How to create schedules, routines and warning systems to help Autistic students cope with changes in the classroom.
  • How to develop flexible learning time frames for all which enable Autistic students processing time but to not disrupt full class participation.
  • How to organise your classroom environment to accommodate the physical needs of Autistic students.
  • How to engage parents and carers in the education process to support a common approach to student learning.
  • How to develop whole schools strategies that help students and teachers when transitioning students around the school and from class to class.
  • How to develop strategies for helping Autistic children cope in the playground.
  • A downloadable (Bring a USB stick) set of resources that explain the condition and provide notes, connections and advice.
