AUTISM SCHOOLING IN SOUTH AFRICA

Slide5

1 out of 88 children are now diagnosed on the autism spectrum in South Africa4 out of 5 of them are boysWith the above statistics one can estimate that there could be 270 000 children on the autism spectrum in South AfricaSouth Africa has 9 provinces, 4 provinces have state schools, 5 provinces have no schools for children with autism.There are 6 state funded schools:2 in the Western Cape1 in the Eastern Cape2 in Gauteng7 classes attached to schools in Kwa-zulu Natal.Across the country there are a few private programs supporting parents and helping children.The State schools and the extra classrooms that are added to mainstream schools can only provide for ± 1,563 children, according to the statistics in 2002.That leaves approximately 258 437 children without access to beneficial educationA few children receive a social grant of R1,140.00Because of the lack of knowledge and understanding of Autism, the children are being asked to leave schools with the result that some end up being home-schooled or they receive no schooling. The rest of the children have no services.

What is tutoring?

Tutoring takes place 1:1 (one tutor, one child) which consists of two to three hours of therapy at a time.Each child has a programme designed to their specific needs. It is a language based programme, which encompasses cognitive, social, sensory, perceptual, emotional as well as gross and fine motor development.

Socialisation and Generalisation

Parents and caregivers are strongly advised to join in on the sessions to encourage consistency and carry-over in what the child has mastered at SNAP.Occassional sessions take place in the child’s home environment to support generalisation.Outings and social opportunities are made available to develop appropriate emotional and social behaviour.

School Support

SNAP provides academic, emotional and behavioural support for learners at SNAP Academy as well as learners from mainstream schools.Communication between SNAP and the teachers is the key to providing valuable support and facilitating progress.

The groups provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere for children to identify and understand other people’s perspectives.It provides children with the tools to deal with various emotions that affect impulse control; self image and confidence.

WORKSHOPS AT SNAP

Slide51

What is a workshop?

Hands-on parent training.Evaluating the child and compiling a program for him/her that is tailored to meet his/her needs.Tutors/carers often come along as and receive the same training.Family is empowered and goes home with a program and knowledge on how to manage their child at home. Some parents video entire sessions to be able to remember better.

Slide52

Workshops at SNAP

At an initial interview we ask parents what they would like to achieve during the workshop. They often mention better behaviour. Some request that we work on language. Others need help with potty training.Some older Asperger children need tools for negotiating the world, which for them can often be very confusing.Workshops can be one week or longer. Some parents book for two weeks. Others book for a month. It depends on their needs.Parents need to come back for follow-up workshops and more training and the child’s program needs upgrading from time-to-time. This can be as soon as 3 months. Others come back every 6 months and some parents do an annual visit.
