DescriptionMany children and individuals with autism often face challenges with their communication, language and socialisation skills. For some children with autism, attending a mainstream school and learning academic concepts can be a real challenge for them. Before children with autism can learn how to use their language to communicate, socialise with other people or even attend a school, they first need to learn and establish several core foundational skills - engagement, motivation, cooperation, imitation and attention.
Through this workshop, you will learn about the core foundational skills for autism and the importance of establishing these skills in order to teach more complex and abstract skills to children with autism. Come learn about the different strategies and activities to teach your child these foundational skills, and to ensure that your child generalises the learned skills across different environments and with different people.
We are excited to have the honour of Jochebed Isaacs presenting at the workshop! Jochebed Isaacs is a Clinical Psychologist and the Director of EAP Malaysia. She was trained as a supervisor at our parent company, Wisconsin Early Autism Project, and has worked with hundreds of children with autism in Malaysia, USA, Perth and Singapore. Jochebed has also trained parents, teachers, therapists and professionals on a variety of topics on autism and Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) to develop new skills and positive behaviour in individuals with autism.
