24AUT32 (LL) A Guide for Special Needs Assistants in ASD Classrooms

Embark on an informative journey designed specifically for Special Needs Assistants (SNAs) who are new to working in special classes for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This webinar will provide foundational knowledge and practical strategies to effectively support students with ASD, ensuring a positive and productive learning environment.

Starting a role as an SNA in a special class for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be both exciting and challenging. This webinar is tailored to help beginners understand the basics of autism and equip them with essential skills to support their students effectively. Attendees will gain insights into the characteristics of ASD, common behaviours, and the best practices for creating an inclusive and supportive classroom environment.

Participants will learn about individualized education plans (IEPs) and Personal pupil Plans (PPPs), sensory integration techniques, communication strategies, and behaviour management approaches tailored to the unique needs of students with ASD.

This FREE webinar with Magdalena Landziak is a collaboration in partnership between Dublin West Education Support Centre, Blackrock Education Support Centre, Drumcondra Education Support Centre, Kildare Education Support Centre and Laois Education Support Centre, and is suitable for Primary SNAs.
