Event description

Description

In this entertaining workshop, Neil Stuart, the National Training and Education Director of Autism NZ and Tanya Catterall, parent of a child on the Spectrum and Autism NZ Educator help you understand why a child with Autism may have difficulties in the mainstream.

Using the analogy of a seesaw, they outline strategies that can help tilt the seesaw back to a place where a child will feel more relaxed and less anxious. They will discuss the use of visual support strategies, stories and comic strips that can help create a supportive environment. They 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
