About the workshop:

A one-day workshop for people who have attended Days 1 and 2 Attention Autism training and are using the programme hands-on with children. This workshop will explore ways of using the Attention Autism Programme as a vehicle for curriculum delivery and developing individual practice.

We will explore the ways in which we can develop the children’s competencies and learning achievements in line with the New Zealand curriculum in Attention Autism sessions. We will look at learning levels and how these can be delivered in Attention Autism sessions to nurture intellectual curiosity and provide a context for introducing, developing and extending skills.

This day is designed to challenge your thinking and practical expertise. We will be looking at the use of humour to proactively manage stress and anxiety, ways in which the philosophy of,’try again’ can be used to build confident and resilient learning in a meaningful context and strategies for using everyone’s skills to create powerful learning opportunities and memorable sessions.

The day includes a range of engaging activities and the opportunity for each participant to develop expertise in hands-on practical sessions.
