About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for primary and secondary educators.

ASD or Autism Spectrum Disorder is a condition experienced by many students and adults in the education community. In this session, the presenter will focus on understanding the condition of ASD; what are some typical characteristics of a person with ASD and how do they manifest themselves in social situations such as schools or early childhood services? The course will explore strategies that you can implement that promote productive working and learning relationships with those who experience ASD. If you are teaching students with ASD you should also consider the partner course on Engaging Students with ASD to be held on 28 July 2020.
