 Autism – Communication Foundations 

22TRA414 Autism – Communication Foundations




Date:        Monday, 3rd October 2022
Time :       7pm - 8.30pm
Venue:     Online Via Zoom  

Autism is described as a ‘neurodevelopmental disorder’ of ‘social communication’. 

As the first webinar in a series of five, we will take time to understand what autism, what it can look like in the classroom, current issues around diagnosis and more! We will spend time considering the neurodiversity movement, and how we can embed pro-neurodiversity practices within your classroom. 

At the end of the session, you will be able to create an individual communication profile for each child. 

This webinar is suitable for SNAs, teachers and learning support teachers at primary and post-primary level.
