Uncovering The ‘Hidden Curriculum’ – What Is It? What Do We Do About It? | Webinar | 24/06/2021

‘Hidden Curriculum’ is the term used for information that people seem to automatically know without ever being explicitly taught.  It involves the ‘unwritten rules’ in situations and ability to read between the lines to get an idea of what’s expected in different places, with certain people, at a specific location or within a particular culture. 
As young people transition from primary school to high school, these ‘unwritten rules’ become more complex.

Supporting Positive Behaviour Change: Finding The Meaning In Behaviour | 09/07/2021

Autism Association of WA – Subiaco, 37 Hay St
Subiaco, WA Australia

To change behaviour, we need to understand why it is occurring. Challenging behaviour happens, not because the person who has Autism is trying to be ‘difficult’, but because they are responding to a situation in the only way they know how. Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an approach that helps us move closer to understanding the cause of the behaviour and what the person is getting out of it so that we can support them to more effectively meet their needs.
