Time:     7 - 8 pm
Venue:  Online via Zoom

Target Audience: Teachers in Primary Autism Classes

Planning and preparation in an autism class can seem difficult and overwhelming. These diverse classrooms often necessitate planning at several different curriculum levels in order to adequately cater to each child’s needs. Additionally teachers are required to support children with their Individual Education Goals, some of which may fall outside of the standard primary curriculum. The purpose of this training is to support teachers in making their recorded planning manageable and meaningful for their practice. Support will be delivered over the course of three hour long webinars.
