The Incredible Years Helping Children with Autism (for teachers)
What is the Incredible Years Helping Children with Autism programme (for teachers)?
The Incredible Years Helping Children with Autism is a six-session, group-based programme for teachers and early childhood educators of children aged 2–5 on the autism spectrum. By supporting the skills and confidence of the key adults in the lives of children on the autism spectrum, it aims to promote children’s emotional regulation, positive social interactions and language development.
The programme covers:
- Language development
- Social interactions and school readiness
- Emotional literacy and self-regulation.
This programme is being offered in the following regions in 2018:
- Hawke’s Bay
What is involved?
Teachers and early childhood educators meet weekly or fortnightly, for 2.5 hours, for six sessions, to look at evidence-based behaviour strategies. During these collaborative sessions, participants will develop and implement goals based on the developmental needs of the children they support.
How to access the programme
If a child’s caregivers are attending the parent programme, they can agree that their early childhood educator or classroom teacher is invited to attend the teacher programme. Early childhood educators or teachers of children on the autism spectrum can also refer themselves.
