Focused Learning for ASD
Focused Learning for ASD
With Naomi Rosenberg
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 compounded by the sensory sensitivity, processing and perceptual difficulties seen in autism.
Naomi has many dynamic and simple ideas to create focused learning opportunities. These are especially useful to develop engagement & interaction. These are ‘easy to replicate’ activities which will be invaluable to you in any setting. You will be able to put many of them in place straight away.
Delegates will discover:
how to create focused sensory experiences that support learning
how to ensure focused sensory learning activities are engaging, but not over-stimulating
what we mean by a positive sensory learning environment
how to create a positive learning environment
how to create an individualised learning environment for specific pupils with autism
how to create opportunities for interaction, turn-taking & communication in group activities
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!
