This is a one day, interactive workshop which will focus on building the capacity of teachers to support children with learning differences.  It is intended to help develop tools and strategies to take back to environments remembering these children provide plenty of opportunities for classes to learn empathy, patience, tolerance, among many other gifts.

Teachers will leave with specific, practical strategies to assist tamariki who struggle with processing disorders of varying types and degrees, behaviour challenges and supporting children on the autism spectrum with a focus on how materials, systems and processes in the environment can support them.

Come, share, bond, laugh, and leave feeling stronger and more excited about how you can support these children.

If you would like to share a video clip of particular challenging behaviours or a child on the autism spectrum for discussion at the workshop, please contact Cathy Wilson. eo@montessori.org.nz for a permission form to be completed prior to videoing.
