CANCELLED Intensive Workshop | Thinking Socially and Regulating Emotions | 06/04/2018

April 6 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

| $155.00

Unfortunately, this workshop has been cancelled due to low registration numbers. Kindly email seminars@autism.org.au should you have any queries. 

For teaching staff who have attended one of the Autism Association’s 1 day professional development seminars, this ½ day workshop focuses on using practical tools from Social Thinking Curriculum “Zones of Regulation” and the Social Thinking curriculum to give you experience and practice with using these programmes effectively in your school.

Social thinking has been described as: “…a combination of thoughts, feelings, ideas and actions working in tandem with each other in unique ways for each social situation we encounter” – Michelle Garcia Winner.  This seminar looks at the concept of social thinking and how the student with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often finds the concept challenging.  Participants will learn how emotional regulation; social self-awareness; perspective taking (Theory of Mind); executive functioning and social skills interplay with one another to affect the student’s behaviour within themselves and with others.


  • Learn about the concepts of social thinking and self-regulation and use this to explore what self-skills are required to be successful in social situations.
  • Investigate a range of practical strategies including Social Behaviour Mapping and the Zones of Regulation to use within the school environment to assist the student with ASD.
