Supporting Students with Autism - Nelson
Tue 6 June 2017, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM NZST
In this entertaining workshop, Robyn Young, AutismNZ Educator with nine years’ experience as an Outreach Coordinator and previously worked in the Education sector, help you understand why a child with Autism may have difficulties in the mainstream.
Using the analogy of a seesaw, she will outline strategies that can help tilt the seesaw back to a place where a child will feel more relaxed and less anxious. Robyn will discuss the use of visual support strategies, stories and comic strips that can help create a supportive environment. She will also outline a useful support strategy using the peers in the class to create a circle of friends.
With the advent of the Modern Learning Environment, discussion will focus on how this will have an impact on the student with Autism
