Homework can play an important part in the learning journey for all students, especially those with autism who benefit from the practice of school-based learning to new [outside school] environments and with different people. This session will get you thinking about more effective homework tasks, creating motivation to actually complete homework, alternatives to home based homework and setting up a successful home to school partnerships around homework, which in turn will encourage students to complete their homework tasks.

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.
