Supporting Social Skills and Friendships – Primary School | WEBINAR | 01/09/2022

online webinar, Australia

Everyone has the right to belong and to make meaningful connections with those around them. Social relationships and friendships provide us with experience in managing our own emotions, responding to the feelings of others, collaborating, negotiating and problem-solving. Children with Autism often require support to develop the skills they need to make and keep friends. Join us as we look at how to build on your child’s strengths to help them navigate and benefit from the social dynamics of friendship in primary school.

Supporting Positive Behaviour Change | WEBINAR | 13/10/2022

online webinar, 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.
