PRESENTING FROM AN AUTISTIC STUDENTS PERSPECTIVE

I delivered three  workshops at Aldridge State High School.
From the Perspective of an Autistic Student.
Empowering students to identify how they learn best , their support needs, how to  advocate and negotiate supports.
To give teaching staff  insight and understanding from an autistic students perspective.
I also shared some strategies, that would have helped me if I was still  accessing mainstream school.
‘What Works For Me’
Is an A4 size card, with important information to help communicate learning and emotional support needs while at school.
It also has a section where the student has negotiated modifications.
Presenting is amazing though it takes a few days for me to recover.
I received positive feedback from both staff and students.
I loved every minute of it.
