About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for all Primary and Secondary Teachers.

Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may experience difficulty when planning, preparing for, getting started
and completing work tasks. Poor executive function - the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention,
remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully - is often a characteristic of ASD. Bearing this in mind,
students will benefit from explicit teaching of how to approach work tasks.  For a student with ASD, this may provide vital
pieces to the confusing puzzle that is school. This session will outline practical ideas and strategies for teaching task

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be 90 minutes in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to 90 minutes of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
