KRISTEN MESSENGER - WED 15 MAY 2019

OBSESSIONS AND SPECIAL INTERESTS: A TOOL FOR LEARNING AND A TEACHER'S BEST FRIEND

ALL STAFF IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS INCLUDING SCHOOL AND CURRICULUM LEADERS, CLASSROOM TEACHERS, SPECIAL EDUCATION COORDINATORS, COUNSELLORS, WELLBEING COORDINATORS, AND SCHOOL ASSISTANTS - TWILIGHT SESSION

PRESENTED BY KRISTEN MESSENGER, OWNER OF BUGS N SLUGS

A special word from Kymberly Louise, director for Learning 4 All: Kristen is a woman on the autism spectrum who uses her time to work with students and education staff to improve outcomes for all children. Kristen has permitted me to tell you that through seeing a previous presentation of Kristen’s, I gained a deeper understanding of autism than I had despite a degree in psychology and working in special education for 20 years. I gained a unique perspective into what the experience of autism can mean for students. This is an opportunity to take some of the facts that you know about autism, and understand the motivations and lived experience of autism that might then cause certain behaviours to arise in the classroom. Regards, Kymberly.

This workshop is intended for all school staff working with students or involved in planning, program or policy development for student welfare. The workshop will provide information about how to make the most of obsessions and special interests, and harnessing their power as a catalyst for learning opportunities and behaviour management

Learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • Practical strategies to engage children in learning through their special interests
  • Understanding and identifying appropriate use of special interests for behaviour management
  • Practical strategies to encourage and reward classroom participation

Practical tips and tricks to create 'win/win' situations for teachers and students
