Description This one-day course enables participants to understand what challenges may arise when working with pupils with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and how they can be best approached. It explains how to support pupils with ASD and how to anticipate, avoid and manage what can be problematic, even challenging behaviours. The day gives participants an understanding of ASD, its aetiology, prevalence and presentation. A workshop gives participants an opportunity to practise assessing and understanding any problem behaviours exhibited by ASD pupils they work with - and to devise appropriate and effective strategies to change, avoid, eliminate or better manage the behaviour. The emphasis is on the needs of ASD students and appropriate support and problem solving - both in the classroom and during unstructured periods such as break and lunchtimes.
