Supporting students with autism with social skills in school (On Demand)
Understanding the difficulties with social skills for students with ASD. What makes it challenging in the school environment, and practical strategies to help students and their peers with engaging in social interactions and play.
What you'll learn
Understanding difficulties with social behaviour in ASD. Tools for supporting social skills.
All teachers or anyone in a supporting role in education (Teacher’s assistants, Learning Support Coordinators, SENCOs, School Counsellors, Deans or Heads of Department).
Anyone who is new to ASD, as well as those needing a 'refresher', as diagnostic criteria and ideas on ASD have changed in the last 10 years.
I have always found the presenters at Children's Autism Foundation equipped with a wealth of knowledge especially with the needs of ASD being so complex and diverse. I feel the skills and strategies I have picked up have helped with all learners in the classroom and made a difference to those especially needing the extra support. These are definitely workshops that I look forward to attending and encourage others to do so too.
