2 Day Event Multiple Attendance is required
Attention Autism was devised by speech and language therapist Gina Davies to provide children with a forum for developing attention and communication skills and to encourage them to enjoy do so. Engaging, innovative activities encourage ‘an irresistible invitation to learn.’ Gina Davies commissions Middletown Centre for Autism to provide the training on the island of Ireland. An RoI venue will be released soon.
The group work starts at a level where the child cannot get it wrong. It aims to build skills gradually over several weeks, beginning with a scenario where the young person only has to concentrate on one activity. The children learn as part of a group. Activities are structured to first capture attention, then maintain attention, then move into turn-taking, interactive activities. Attention Autism is exciting, and innovative offering children ‘an irresistible invitation to learn’.
The training will cover 4 stages of the Attention Autism Programme and allow you to use the approach in your classroom setting. There will be lecture and workshop based activities.
Stage 1 Orientation and Focused Attention
Stage 2 Sustained Attention
Stage 3 Shifting attention and participation
Stage 4 Shift attention from the group, through a transition
