This workshop is primarily for parents or carers of children with ASD, but would also be helpful for parents of children with other developmental disabilities.
What's the aim of this workshop and research project?
To give you, as a parents of a child with ASD the knowledge, strategies and support you need to develop a vision and plan for their child and to work with educators and professionals to develop and implement effective educational programs for their children.
What will the research project and workshop involve?
You will participate in a two-day workshop in which you will be given specific training and strategies in the use of the Cycle of Learning framework in order to enable you to guide your child’s learning as they progress through school and to work with schools to implement effective educational programs that will support your child to achieve his/her full potential.
You will be guided to develop not only a plan for your child, but a plan of action to help you make more effective decisions, be a successful advocate for them, and assist them to identify their own strengths and needs and eventually advocate for themselves.
