20-3268-AUT-Understanding Children with Autism - Seminar for Parents


Parents, families and people caring for autistic children are invited to an information session held by SEN  teacher Mrs. Libby Conory, Grad.Dip SEN, M. SEN (Autism). 


I have been a primary school teacher for over fifteen years. I am a passionate lifelong learner and have  completed many different courses in the area of Autism and Special Education.


Over these years I have gathered a wealth of practical skills, tips and strategies which I’m sure teachers and parents will find invaluable when trying to adapt their environment to suit the Autistic Child.


 I also care a lot for people with Special Needs and strive to help create a society where people with different minds are accepted and appreciated for their own personal identities. I aim to encourage people to be more open minded and accepting and I believe wholeheartedly that this is achieved through education and courses such as these.



This 90/100 minute session will cover the following topics:


-Introduction and the history of Autism, the importance of early intervention


- Sensory processing issues associated with Autism and ways to meet sensory needs


-Communication challenges and strategies to encourage verbal language


-Overview of best strategies to help teach and include children with Autism


-Understanding challenging behaviour, a brief look at ABA and strategies to reduce it


-Helping your child form relationships and friendships



There will be an informal discussion afterwards if you would like to connect with other parents and talk about any issues you may have.
