Focused Learning Autism

Communication is the key to most personal & educational objectives we set for our pupils, but a huge challenge for those with autism/ASC,  which is further compounded by the sensory sensitivity, processing and perceptual difficulties seen in autism.

Naomi has a plethora of dynamic, but simple, ideas to create focused learning opportunities to develop engagement & interaction. These ‘easy to replicate’ activities will be invaluable to you in your classroom or setting, and and you will be able to to implement them straight away.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Delegates will discover:

  • how to create focused sensory experiences that will support a pupil’s personalised learning 
  • how to create opportunities for interaction, turn-taking & communication in group activities
  • how to ensure focused sensory learning activities are engaging, but not over-stimulating 
  • what we really mean by ‘a positive sensory learning environment’
  • why is it essential that the learning environment for pupils with autism is highly individualised & how to create this
  • how to enable pupils with autism to build more successful relationships with their peers

Naomi shares a variety of strategies which are innovative & lively with many opportunities for experiential learning for delegates!
