Strategies for Students with ASD

Independence can open the door to a range of learning and social opportunities, which is why parents and teachers consider it an important area to develop for the learner with ASD.  Achieving a level of independence is possible by adopting teaching approaches which focus on the ASD learning style. Such an approach is the TEACCH® framework. In this one-day workshop you will be introduced to the principles of TEACCH® and the elements that support their learning style. The elements of TEACCH® include the physical structure, work systems, visual structure and visual schedules. Through scenarios and hands-on activities, you will learn to apply these elements and reflect on their application to learners that you currently work with.

Workshop outline:

  • Learning Style of ASD
  • Independence: what it looks like
