    Presented by Mary Steuten 

    The program will look at:

    We have high expectations behaviourally of our students and many will just know intuitively how to behave appropriately. Students on the autism spectrum typically don’t learn these things as easily as other students. Hence, you must explicitly teach them and practice them as a class.  We often assume behavioural errors to be deliberate when, in fact, especially for students on the spectrum, they may occur simply because they have not been taught what is expected and have not been reinforced when ‘getting it right’. In this course the presenter will outline approaches to teaching social and emotional skills for students on the autism spectrum.

    1 Know students and how they learn

    1.1.2 Physical, social and intellectual development and characteristics of students
    1.5.2 Differentiate teaching to meet the specific learning needs of students across the full range of abilities
    1.6.2 Strategies to support full participation of students with disability

    3 Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning

    3.2.2 Plan, structure and sequence learning programs
    3.5.2 Use effective classroom communication

    Presented by Laura Greaves, Hume Valley Special School

    The program will look at:

    Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a framework for understanding the cause of inappropriate behaviours and how to respond effectively. When faced with challenging behaviours in any learning environment, it is important for the teacher to be able to describe the behaviour they do want in the classroom. The presenter will show how they have used PBS to plan classroom strategies to get the preferred behaviours in their work with students with physical and intellectual disabilities.

    People who enrol for this workshop, if they have not already done so should also enrol for the companion workshop 'L752 Positive behaviour support – analysing the behaviour' on Tuesday 17th October. A recording of that workshop will also appear on the TLN website www.tln.org.au

    This workshop has wide application and could meet the needs of teachers working in primary, secondary or special education settings.
