What is School Inclusion Program?
Autism SA’s highly experienced and qualified autism advisors and practitioners provide support to autistic students, as well as their schools, families and carers. Our team work with students and support teams to identify goals and utilise evidence-based strategies to enable autistic individuals to achieve these goals.
Our advisors and practitioners develop strategies, practices and supports for children on the autism spectrum in an education setting.
We work collaboratively with the different people with whom students engage at school in order to develop strategies and implement practices and support that are appropriate to the individual. This can include working with and providing support for:
- Individual students;
- School support staff;
- School leadership; and
- Special education coordinators.
What are the benefits of the service?
Autism advisors and practitioners support individual students, families and educators to develop skills and strategies in a wide range of areas including, but not limited to:
- Emotional Regulation and coping strategies
- Positive Behaviour Support
- Reducing behaviours of concern
- Coping with change
- Supporting sensory needs
- Developing social skills and problem-solving
- Developing and maintaining friendships
- Group participation and interaction/play skills
- Organisational and independence skills
- Self-care skills
- Promoting motivation and engagement in the education setting
- Developing Theory of Mind
- Understanding autism
- Supporting access to the school curriculum
- School transition
- Attendance at Multi-Disciplinary Meetings (One Plans/Individual Education Plans (IEP’s), return to school)
Support can be delivered in an education setting through individualised 1:1 support, in a small group setting within the classroom/school environment, at our Hubs, or at home.
Our advisors and practitioners also work closely with families and educators to help generalise new skills across all contexts, so as to make a real difference to the understanding, practices, and capacity of individuals and families at home, in the classroom, and across the wider school community.
Support can be delivered in an education setting through individualised one-to-one support, in a small group setting within the classroom/school environment and at our Hubs, or at home.
