BRISBANE - PLAN for Year 7 workshop series

Autism Queensland, 437 Hellawell Road, SUNNYBANK HILLS - 15:30 - 17:30

SERIES DATES: Thursday 9 & 23 May; 6 & 20 June.

This suite of four workshops will provide participants with information and strategies to best support students on the autism spectrum in the Year 7 setting. Participants will gain a greater understanding of autism and the practical approaches that can be used to support individuals within this year level.  

Strategies presented will be relevant to a Year 7 setting and suitable for implementation by busy high school teachers and their support staff. This series has been designed in the knowledge that participants will attend all four workshops, as the topics are built upon knowledge learnt within each session.

  • Supporting students to develop new friendships

WORKSHOP 4   Navigating High School

  • Organisation and planning skills
