This comprehensive online ASD and Movement series of 5 webinars is suitable for Teachers, SNAs and parents who wish to develop and upskill on knowledge and practice in relation to ASD with specific emphasis on movement as a strategy to promote regulation, reduce anxiety and increase engagement in classroom and incidental teaching and learning. The webinars aim to promote a deep understanding of the role of movement skills to address sensory integration dysfunction for the population on the spectrum. By adapting the environment and the skill we are teaching to accommodate the individual, we will benefit from greater engagement and more productive participation.
