Supporting Students with Autism in K-6


The Supporting Students with Autism in K-6 course is designed to:

  • develop an understanding of the wide range of characteristics of students on the Autism Spectrum;
  • explore a range of strategies which address the needs of students on the Autism Spectrum in the areas of language and cognitive development, communication skills and social behaviour;
  • develop specific strategies to help students on the Autism Spectrum access the curriculum, manage their own stressful reactions and modify their behaviours

Participants will also write a social story that addresses the individual needs of a student on the Autism Spectrum; and develop an understanding of how to set up an effective learning environment for students on the Autism Spectrum.
