BC Summer Games Presents Community Development Sessions
Session #2: Making Ethical Decisions (an NCCP Competition Introduction module)
Canucks Autism Network Workshop
This workshop will provide an overview of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and information about the types of challenges that individuals with ASD may experience in sport and recreation environments.
A broad range of support strategies and coaching tips will be covered, including how to adapt communication, making coaching more concrete for visual learners, motivation strategies, rapport-building techniques, and group management strategies.
Workshop attendees will learn to â€˜see from the childâ€™s shoesâ€™ to problem solve and select a coaching strategy that will help all participants to succeed. Strategies overviewed are appropriate for individuals aged 3-adult, across the autism spectrum and with other related challenges (e.g., learning disabilities, ADHD, FASD, etc.).
This workshop is appropriate for community coaches, parks & recreation staff, physical education teachers, parents, teachers, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about supporting individuals with ASD.
