Facilitating Language & Play for Children with Autism

Children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and children that have difficulties with social communication need additional support with initiating and engaging in interaction and understanding social rules.
This two-hour training session will aim to help you to understand more about working with these children and their parents to support their social communication skills.
Practical tips and activities will be suggested to support you with children that you have in mind, whilst providing time to discuss strategies and how to best apply them in your classroom.
