Learning with Autism Spectrum Disorder

What is Autism?

Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder which affects the processing of information particularly around social situations. It can affect people’s educational progress in many different ways regardless of how intelligent someone with Autism may be. It often comes together with ADHD, dyslexia, epilepsy, and so can be difficult to isolate in diagnosis while frequently being missed for many years. The educational system may provide extra help, but because of how varied people with Autism present and because of the various other issues they may have, it is often not sufficiently fine-tuned for the individuals concerned. This is where targeted educational therapy can make a big difference.

The Multisensory Approach to Learning
with Autism/ASD

We find that the multisensory approach is very effective for people with autism. There is a growing body of research and interest in applying this approach for students with autism all over the world.

There is a growing body of research into the usefulness of employing multisensory methods for people with autism, including Jaclyn Smith (“Multisensory Learning and its Effect on Students with Autism” (2019). Education Masters. Paper 367) and Amaal Mustafa (“Investigating the Effect of Multisensory Approach on Improving Emergent Literacy Skills in Children with Autism Disorder.” International Journal of Psycho-Educational Sciences Vol. 7, Issue (1), April –2018)

The following link is an example of how multisensory education is becoming increasingly recognised and implemented for students with Autism.

Multisensory Tutoring for Autism/ASD

Mainstream education is geared to the majority of society, and often doesn’t engage students with Autism and related conditions. The therapists and teachers at Neurosensory use an individualized approach that doesn’t see their special interests as a hindrance to learning, but as a catalyst for their and our engagement and growth. Our approach is organic, creative, and structured.

By showing that we value their interests, we find that the self-esteem, confidence, and self-expression of our students grow.

Autism Assessments
for both Adults & Children

Many high-functioning people with Autism mask their symptoms in everyday life as they try to fit in with the expectations of society. Girls and women in particular often miss early diagnosis and treatment as a result of their skill in masking. We can provide screening assessments and refer to psychologists, paediatricians and psychiatrists if we consider that there could be a possible diagnosis.

Some assessments we use as a guide include the Test of Pragmatic Language (TOPL2) and the Social Responsiveness Scale (SRS). We stress that we cannot formally diagnose people, but we can refer them.

NDIS Funding for Autism

Some students with Autism may be eligible for NDIS funding. We have several students who have been able to fund Neurosensory services through their NDIS plan. We can assist people with their NDIS application process.
