Nelle Frances is presenting her Autism Sensory Workshop for teachers, health professionals, support workers and families. The workshop provides a detailed description of individuals on the Autism Spectrum, including profiles on the neurology, biology, cognitive processing, perception differences and learning styles of those with the condition.

The workshop offers a vivid insight into the subtle intricacies of Autism/Asperger's; but more importantly provides participants a myriad of strategies to engage successfully with individuals on the Spectrum. Participants will learn specific techniques for dealing with challenging behaviours and meltdown and how to decrease stress in those with AS. The training includes Nelle's high-impact Sensory Detective Workshop ® - an interactive exercise that allows you to look at Autism/Asperger's from the inside out!

You'll learn first hand how sensory stimuli influences all behaviour, emotional development and academic progress. With this knowledge you'll find adopting simple accommodations and differentiation strategies becomes second nature!

Workshop outcomes:
- understand Autism/Asperger's
- in-depth knowledge of characteristics
- knowledge of biological traits of ASD
- in-depth knowledge of physiology of meltdowns
- recognise sensory agitation
- link sensory issues + all behaviour
- establish accommodations/differentiations for student

The day concludes with techniques for becoming 'Sensory Detectives' and a variety of helpful Apps for iDevices.
