Understanding evidence -based strategies and providing support to children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Aim of training

The aim of the training to provide knowledge and skill development is to increase staff capacity to work successfully with children and young people with ASD.  The training will have a practical emphasis and be delivered as interactive workshops where participants learn new skills and practice them in collaborative learning activities.

    • Prevalence of Autism in disability support
    • Understanding Autism as a spectrum
    • History of Autism
    • Understanding the diagnosis
    • Working with the different presentations of ASD from non -verbal and intellectually disabled to high functioning ASD
    • Understanding sensory disfunction and ASD
    • Understanding communication frustration and ASD


    • Tony Attwood Australian Story reflection activity. Case studies are provided examining strategies for support staff to assist their clients linking theory to practice. 
    • Examples of the use of social stories to assist in building skills and managing anxiety and creating a social story to support community participation.  Participants will create their own social learning story for a client they are currently working with to assist.
    • Functional Behaviour Analysis activity is created to support understanding of function of behaviour and how to address behaviours of concern with positive replacement behaviour.
