Parents of children with ASD are eager to send their children to school just like other typically developing children. While many schools welcome children with ASD to learn in their schools, parents and teachers are often not well informed whether the learning environment provided by the schools are conducive to the long-term development of the children. The lack of relevant learning abilities and being sent to school hastily, will not only hinder their progress, but also dilute the “golden age” of treatment.
This workshop and parent consultation meetings are strictly for adults only.
In this workshop, we will discuss the skills that children with ASD will need before entering school. This includes acquiring pivotal ‘learning how to learn’ skills, which is basically teaching children the process of learning. It is the foundation to acquire all other skills needed, to be successful in learning in a group and in school.
“Learning How to Learn” Acquiring “learning to learn” skills is absolutely pivotal in a child’s success. It is teaching children the process of learning. It is the foundation, perhaps the pivotal skill necessary for them to acquire all other skills. Often when a child is struggling in learning beginning or even advanced skills it is often because the child is deficient in this area. Learning how to understand feedback, remaining calm, and paying attention are just a few of the skills that are critical to accelerating the learning process.
