General Description

Autism is a hugely topical area as the statistics for the prevalence of Autism rise with each year. This has many ramifications for the education system and teaching as parents now demand an equal, inclusive education for their children who have Autism.
Mainstream school & teachers are largely ill-equipped and have minimal Autism training. This course will provide you with vital information, strategies and techniques that you can take back to your school and classroom.

This is the second of two courses presented by Karen Barley on Autism Awareness. You can take this course as an extension of the original Autism course or as a stand alone. YOU DO NOT NEED to take the first course to do this one.

Audience

Principals, Teachers, Teacher’s Aides.
