What we will cover in this webinar
What School Avoidance or School Can't looks like and why that behaviour makes sense to your autistic child. We explain what is going on in their mind and body to create this behaviour and how you can approach it with empathy and understanding.
Breaking it down
School avoidance can feel like a really complex issue and often it is, but we break it down into 6 different categories you and your child can work on together. There are many strategies you can implement to alleviate the grassroots challenges causing this behaviour.
Trauma & Pain-Based Behaviour
It is so important to use a trauma-informed approach when working with Autistic children, especially in the context of School Can't. We will give you a greater understanding of this approach and ways to implement it at home and in the classroom.
If you are struggling to communicate effectively with your child's school or feel they are being treated unfairly, we introduce you to a toolkit from the Australian Centre for Disability Law to help you advocate for your child in the education system.

Your Webinar Host:
Jackie Hall - Professional Counsellor & PSC Founder
Hi, I am Jackie Hall, Founder of Parental Stress Centre, ACA-accredited counselor, EMDR therapist. five-time author, and mother who has been in the pits of despair as a parent—it's what inspired me to start creating courses...
I studied everything I could get my hands on and what I learned truly changed my family's life, and it can do the same for you.
From my time working with complex-needs autistic children in residential youth care, I became passionate about translating complex issues into manageable, actionable strategies.
The moment you start to understand what’s really going on for a child, things begin to get easier. Not overnight, but bit by bit.
I jam so much valuable information into this webinar you will walk away with a plethora of practical, evidence-based techniques that actually work and, importantly, it is delivered by someone who actually understands neurodivergent children and families.
