This is a past course. View upcoming courses.

The workshop is targeted at teachers, parents and guardians to help them create customised storybooks with their autistic children. Many often struggle to interest autistic children (particularly those with poor language skills) in conventional storybooks. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to integrate their language learning objectives and their children’s interests and routines to co-create storybooks.

The workshop leader will guide participants to create individualised storybooks that match their children’s interests/routines, their learning preferences/styles, and the participants’ objectives. The storywriting process also involves the use of diverse media and tasks, which appeal to autistic children. Besides writing, they will also be reading, colouring, cutting and pasting in the process of completing the task.
