Full-Day Workshop

Seminar: Goals, Lessons and Outcomes

When we work with autistic individuals, we often identify new skills that need to be taught to improve the person’s quality of life and reduce behaviours of concern. The process of teaching involves developing goals, designing lessons, and measuring learning outcomes.

This workshop will cover the writing of goals, the two principle types of lessons, lesson design, and the collection and analysis of data to measure progress.

Time:9.00am - 5.00pm (Singapore Standard Time GMT+0800)
