Jubilee Community Centre, Alfred Street, MACKAY - 09:30 - 14:30
This session is for teacher aides supporting students on the autism spectrum. Participants will gain an understanding of autism and how it impacts the individual. Throughout the day, we will discuss proactive strategies that are individualised to the student, support inclusion and maximise participation.
Discussions will cover:

Positive Behaviour Support, and why this approach is successful when supporting children on the autism spectrum
Effective ways to work as a team
The importance of an individual profile. Participants will be provided with the framework for developing a profile that can be shared with their school team.
The facilitator will discuss examples and cases to highlight challenges and strategies which may be useful for the student. Participants will have opportunities to share tips and strategies. Questions and sharing of information/ideas are encouraged and highly desirable to enhance learning outcomes.
