different shapes and forms as well as the overlap between praxis and language.

This workshop will cover the key features of Autism and different assessment and intervention practices related to the Spectrum of Autism profiles. The workshop participant will be able to apply techniques and assessments that are both sophisticated, but also low technology so that one could form an opinion and intervention that suits the need of most profiles on the Autism Spectrum. The speaker will discuss etiology, including the origins of different stereotypical behaviors as well the developmental hierarchy to be considered in intervention. Different theories such as “Theory of Mind” and “Central Coherence Theory” will be covered alongside the information of how to consider the development of executive functions to be applied to the learning process.

Testimonials

Dear Maude

They say a true teacher is someone that can touch both the heart and the mind of their student - at the same time! In my experience, this makes you a true teacher.

So, my appreciation to you as being a great teacher. I walked into the room on Friday, feeling such a heaviness at the task we face each day and left with a sense of purpose and renewed enthusiasm for continuing that work. I am under no illusion that it is suddenly all “light” work but I feel empowered by the addition of depth to my knowledge, and confirmation that my instincts were right, I just needed to have the science behind them!

Thank you for teaching so well, for sharing so willingly and for doing it in such a gracious and professional way. You have the absolute balance between head and heart!


With gratitude and admiration

Sam (School principle of Montesorri School) March 29, 2015


Maude is a wonderful presenter who shares a wealth of knowledge in a warm, positive way. She paints many pictures of different and progressive therapies that inspire attendees to educate themselves further and look at their children’s challenges in new and different ways. This workshop was extremely helpful to me.


Heather Spinosa


Maude is a wonderful and knowledgeable speaker. She has met a need in the community to help us address and identify the specialised needs of children with extreme functioning disorders and help them earlier before the suffer of low self-esteem and school aversion.


Melisa Roy


Maude has really opened my eyes to a whole new way of approaching my tx SX. I feel like I gained so much information to help to guide my future independent learning and expanding my clinical knowledge.


Hana Bernett


Great Course! Maude have us a new way of looking at everything we already knew. Highly recommended.
