Can you make it through your day without a break? Meaningful and successful academic and social engagement requires a regulated brain. One way to support regulation is to provide careful and considered monitored breaks. A simple break can increase attention and success while in turn reduce the likelihood of escalation. This session will help you consider the when, where, why, how and what of breaks.

Professional Development Workshops are designed for any professional that support an individual on the autism spectrum.

All participants receive a certificate stating links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers or to the Allied Health Standards where appropriate.

Workshop Definitions:

GENERAL WORKSHOPS are designed to give participants an introduction to
understanding the autism spectrum and provides workshop participants with the knowledge of key strategies to support individuals in a range of settings.

IN FOCUS WORKSHOPS are designed for participants who have a good, current
understanding of autism and are looking for a more in-depth understanding
relating to a particular area of the autism field. This greater knowledge in turn
provides greater confidence in applying strategies to support individuals in this
area. It is recommended that participants attend an Autism SA General Workshop prior to attending an In-Focus Workshop or Masterclass unless they have a good, current understanding of autism.

MASTERCLASS WORKSHOPS are based on the concept that there is always more to learn. Masterclasses are short intensive workshops that are designed to provide participants who already have a sound current understanding of autism, with specific and extended content relating to a particular topic, strategy or program.
