Autism Connect is a professional learning opportunity for state schools across all regions of Queensland.
Autism Connect promotes the intentional collaboration of school teams and professionals from education, health and tertiary institutions to establish a professional learning community. Schools are encouraged to attend in small teams including teachers, principals, and specialist staff.
Knowledge builds across 6 weeks through sharing of evidence-based practices from our panel and student discussions raised by participating schools. Each term focuses on a different area of interest. Future areas may include executive functioning, self-regulation, engagement and anxiety.
Collective efficacy has the power to positively influence both student achievement and change in schools. Schools are encouraged to be visible, active, and engaged participants during the sessions. To build collective efficacy, Principal Advisors, Autism from respective regions are invited to join the student focused discussions.
Learning is multidirectional and acknowledges the skills, background, and experiences of all participants. There is also opportunity to direct specific questions to experts.
Teams must be available to participate and attend 6, 1-hour sessions run across consecutive weeks.
Schools are asked to share a student case for discussion.
