Course Description

Developed by the TEACCH® Autism Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Structured TEACCHing is an evidence-based intervention that is founded on understanding the learning characteristics of individuals with Autism and the use of visual supports to promote meaning and independence.

The two – day TEACCH® course provides excellent background knowledge on Autism.  The content covers a wide range of topics relevant to learning and teaching and to the development of the child with Autism.

Fundamentals of Structured-TEACCHing is a two-day workshop that will provide participants with an overview of the learning styles of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Structured TEACCHing. Structured TEACCHing is based on the understanding of the symptoms and learning styles of individuals with autism and the use of visual supports to provide meaning, promote independence and capitalise on the individual’s strengths.   Participants will also learn antecedent-based behaviour management strategies using Structured TEACCHing principles.
