I really enjoyed Sue Larkey’s course tremendeously and have learned a great deal, not to mention gaining a new perspective on so many things. Sue was easy to listen to and she kept me engaged with her enthusiasm and obvious caring nature, as she spoke about the children and her experiences with the children, their families and how she has helped them with their many challenges.
Sue’s detailed insight of so many things on ASD/Aspergers has suddenly shed so much light onto so many issues for a number of students (and a few children outside my working environment) for me. It made me want to watch it all again, just to see if I can retain even more the second time around. There was just so much to take in. Some of the simpliest ideas and tips have already helped me in dealing with kids one on one. She mentions in her video that if we thought there was any part of the lessons that should be taken out, or perhaps replaced with something else. Well I don’t feel I have enough experience as yet, to offer advice as to what needs to be added in her videos, but I personally don’t feel there was anything she should take out! There wasn’t one lesson that I didn’t enjoy and found myself discussing it with others and they definitely made ME stop and think about the way I DO and SAY things a lot more when dealing with the children.
“Some of the simpliest of tips which have made me stop and think and others I wasn’t aware of, but they all have really helped:
Talk in a monotone voice to tell them what to do.
A red ear – can be a pre-warning to a shutdown.
Make sure they’ve had a drink of water and been to the toilet before a good learning session is to start.
Ensure you say the child’s name BEFORE you give them an instruction (which I thought I was doing quite well, but obviously not well enough).
Children on the spectrum always replace one behaviour with another and you can’t stop a behaviour…. but you DO need to replace it!
I could go on and on…. Let alone the list of resources which outline strategies for specific behaviours/issues needing a fresh idea.
So Im very thankful that this course was offered to me and I was given the opportunity to take part and gain some very helpful strategies.”
Kind regard, Kerry (Teacher)
Could you please pass on my thanks to Sue for amazing course. As an EA and mum to a child with autism I took so much away with this course, not only for myself, my child and the students I work with but to share with family and teachers. It is the first course I have done that really gets people to reflect on themselves first and then use it as a reflection tool when exploring the complexities of ASD. Kind regards, Michelle
my apologies if this is the wrong place to send but, I just wanted to say thank you for a very informative & interesting course. i am currently doing a cert3in education support course. Your course has been helpful in enhancing this course & ive looked forward to doing it every week. Very easy to follow & understand. It makes sense. So thank you Brenda
Also, can you please pass on to Sue that her course has made the life of one little girl in my room a whole lot easier. Only diagnosed with severe autism this year – the first year of Kindergarten – I was at a loss as I had never taught a child with autism before. This little girl has made me a better teacher and I think, a better person! So on behalf of her, and myself please tell your amazing wife that she is changing lives Jane (Teacher)
