Disruptive behaviours ranging from aggression, tantrums, non-compliance to passive behaviors like engaging in self-stimulatory behaviors interferes with the learning process. Proactively addressing disruptive behaviors using strategies that have long-term effects will prepare a child to be more ready to learn in school.

Acquiring “learning how to learn” skills is pivotal in a child’s success in school. When a child struggles to learn basic or advanced concepts, it is often because the child is lacking these fundamental skills. Paying attention, understanding feedback, and remaining calm are just a few of the areas of “Learning how to learn” skills.

Communication is a major area of deficit in Autism. Helping children to be more spontaneous as well as enhancing their understanding of language are essential for effective communication.

In the presentation, Ms. Loh Li Ling will present various communication and language curriculum that will enable children with Autism to have a more successful journey in school.

Often children with Autism are equipped with simple social skills and quickly being placed in a school environment with hopes of making friends by being around other children. Unfortunately, exposure to other children will not be sufficient. A child’s success in school is as much about the ability to navigate the social world as it is about excelling in learning.

In this presentation, Ms. Nurhayati Ismail will discuss why development of social interest and skills are critical, and explore a wide range of programs and effective techniques to build social skills for children with Autism.
