Seminar on Autism-Friendly Learning Environment

Structured teaching is a system for: organizing space; change of activities with schedules; work study systems to facilitate learning process; and material organization to promote independece. Its primary purpose is to improve adaptation of persons with autism by modifying or structuring the environment to accommodate learning deficits of those in the spectrum.

What distinguishes this seminar from others given on the same topic is the rich inclusion of application of structured teaching at home, from the resource person’s personal experience with her autistic son and those of other families she met.  Actual examples emphasize the need for consistent practice and collaboration between school teachers and carers at home.
