Facilitating Language & Play for Children with Autism
2 March | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and children that have social communication difficulties need additional support to interact, play, understand and socialise with others.
This two hour training session can help you to understand more about working with these children and their parents to improve social communication skills.
Practical tips and activities will help you to focus on children that you have in mind, whilst providing time to discuss strategies and work out how to best apply them in your classroom.
- Preverbal and emerging verbal communication
- Strategies for social communication, play and group time
- Where to get more support
