Understanding and meeting the needs of students with autism can be challenging. It is important for teachers, school staff and other professionals to be continuously supported to develop their knowledge about autism, including strategies that can benefit them in their work with students with autism.

Who can benefit: The course will be valuable to teachers currently in the classroom, pre-service teachers, and education and health professionals who work with children with ASD.

Please note: you are required to attend all three days for this workshop.

This short course is interactive and experimental and participants will receive:

  • 12 contact hours of instruction
  • An additional Saturday morning excursion to observe a successful strength based program designed specifically to support adolescents with ASD
  • Individualised content – each participant will receive individual support from experts in this field to develop and implement an individualised support plan for a specific student.
  • A certificate of professional learning

Your short course convenors are Dr Cindy Smith , Professor Tele Tan, Professor Sonya Girdler, and Dr Marita Falkmer
