An autism school program making a difference

post-image
Marangaroo Primary School is one of five public schools in Western Australia hosting a new program for students with autism. Under the program students receive intensive instructions in their own classes, while given every opportunity to integrate with mainstream students. The ultimate aim is for them to transition into mainstream classes.The programs follow the WA curriculum and target age-appropriate academic skills while addressing the many challenges associated with autism including socialisation, emotional regulation, limited interests and repetitive behaviours. Eligible students require an ASD diagnosis, without accompanying intellectual disability, and need to be independent in terms of toileting and dressing. www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-12/new-wa-autism-school-program-making-a-difference/9642608
