Professional Learning

AES provides training modules to the school community. We specialise in behaviour and social training for Teachers and Education Assistants. What sets this training apart from other Autism behaviour workshops, is the focus on the individual needs of particular students at each particular school, in each particular classroom. It is about practical problem solving for the individual, by using data to analyse each situation before proceeding. Without using the science to the determine individual behaviours, success is unlikely. Follow up recommendations and support is provided if required and appropriate.

This training is available in an initial format of half and full day workshops. Topics may include:

  • understanding of ASD and how to support children with ASD
  • how to collect accurate data
  • adapting curriculum and modifying teaching to facilitate learning
  • behavioural management
  • supporting emotional regulation
  • teaching play and social skills; and
  • individualised problem solving strategies for specific children

A range of add-on services to suit individual schools can be purchased as required.

Autism & Educational Services designed and delivered a 3 hours professional development workshop to our staff on 29th April 2019. The program was designed around our school needs with staff being given the opportunity in advance to request specific areas/concepts to be included. This resulted in case studies being presented that were based on behaviours that some students in our school actually present. Staff came away feeling reaffirmed for the work they are already doing and with many new useful practical strategies to use in the classroom
