About the course

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

Students who experience the condition of ASD, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, have specific learning needs. As a teacher it is important that you have a wide range of strategies to meet the learning needs of students and children who experience this condition. For example, one of the key characteristics of students with ASD is a focus on fixed interests. This can manifest as an intense focus on a narrow topic and can be used by teachers to engage students with ASD in the learning that is happening in the classroom. In this course the presenter will explore strategies that can assist students with ASD to successfully achieve their learning goals in your classroom. 

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour 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 one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
