Introduction to Managing Emotions, Meltdowns, & Behaviour in Children with High Functioning Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorder now affects 1 in 100 Australian children. Many of these children struggle to manage their emotions, develop and maintain friendships, and engage at school. Many also have unique skills and abilities which set them apart from their peers and, if understood and embraced, can create endless possibilities later in life.

This workshop aims to help caregivers understand their child’s unique profile, create strategies to manage challenging behaviours and meltdowns, and foster their child’s unique abilities for lifelong learning. It covers areas such as emotional control, sensory sensitivity, social understanding and behaviour, learning differences and anxiety. Strategies for home and school will be covered, along with a brief look at professional treatment techniques.

Note: This workshop is designed for caregivers and teachers of children aged 5-12 years with high-functioning Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.

Using Toys and Games to Promote Social Skills, Emotional Control, & Flexible Thinking in Children with Autism

Children with Autism often have difficulty engaging in the same play activities as their peers. Difficulties with emotional control (eg. staying calm when losing), social skills (eg. turn taking), and flexible thinking (eg. adapting to changing rules) can all be problems for these children. Using toys and games can be one of the simplest and most motivating methods for children with Autism to improve in these areas.

This workshop aims to help caregivers identify the barriers to successful participation their children experience, the toys and games that might be effective in increasing participation, and the correct ways of using these toys and games.

Note: This workshop is designed for caregivers and teachers of children aged 5-12 years with high-functioning Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.
