In September 2020, the ASD-EAST project released its Autism Teacher Training Curriculum and corresponding training materials in English, French, Croatian, Macedonian and Polish.
The Autism Teacher Training Curriculum provides a programme which supports teachers in learning about various topics related to autism and teaching. The curriculum was developed to provide teachers with the tools to better support the inclusion and participation of autistic students in their classrooms. Through the learning formats of lectures, workshops, discussion groups, case studies, examples from school and everyday life, the ASD-EAST training:
- introduces key knowledge
- enhances understanding
- improves practical skills in the use of appropriate strategies for teaching primary school students with ASD in both mainstream and special education educational settings.
The curriculum comprises six modules addressing the following topics:
- Supporting communication
- Emotional regulation
- Social skills
- Sensory needs
- Modifications and adaptations
- Challenging behaviour
Each module includes activities, tips, resources and reflections to aid teachers in their learning.
