SSOS & TUTORS IN JUNIOR PRIMARY, MIDDLE, SECONDARY SCHOOLS AND SPECIAL EDUCATION SETTINGS - SCHOOL HOLIDAY TWILIGHT SESSION

PRESENTER - ROBYN WHITTLE-HUGHES, OWNER, READY4SUCCESS

  2. The link between AP and WM and many identifiable learning difficulties and disabilities
  3. Gathering base-line data and working from there to make a real difference
  4. Strategies and skills to teach in a 1:1 setting to develop independent learner skills.

Learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • Skills to identify a child with Auditory Processing and Working Memory difficulties
  • Skills to identify, using evidence-based assessments, explicit skill levels and gaps in learning
  • Explicit skills and strategies to support children with a range of learning differences
  • Confidence to deliver effective, targeted and progressive 1:1 skill-based intervention.

PRESENTER - KYMBERLY LOUISE, BEHAVIOURAL SCIENTIST

This workshop will expose staff to understandings from psychology, neuroscience, disability, and education research to support their knowledge of the difficulties in learning experienced by students with additional learning needs.

Participants will:

  • Understand the range of common developmental difficulties associated with many learning difficulties including issues with executive function, sensory processing, and working and long term memory.
  • Work toward strategies suitable for their site and their practice to support students with additional learning needs
  • Be exposed to tools and resources to support them in adapting their practice to better support their students toward learning and behavioural outcomes.

  • An awareness of the incidence and prevalence of common disorders in Australian classrooms
  • Understanding what science can tell us about the physical, cognitive, and psychological factors that relate to the disorders
  • Understanding how these disorders might impact learning and behaviour
