Alicia Round

Hi, I am Alicia,


I started working for Independent Kids back in 2008 for three years and have since returned in 2018. I have a Fine Arts background and have a Bachelor of Education (with Honours). My Honours research focused on Special Education and was based on using visual arts as a tool to encourage individuals with autism to communicate. This research paper was published in 2017.

Over the last 19 years, I have gained practical experience in working with assessment, educational programming, and management of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My interests include Positive Behaviour Support strategies, social-emotional learning and creating resources for visuals learning styles.

In the past, I have worked closely with, and provide advice, consultancy, and support to parents and teachers in the implementation of intervention programs for students with Autism.

I have also implemented parent and professional training programs to support young children with Autism and/or Pervasive Developmental Disorder. I have been a keynote speaker at the University of Tasmania, Inclusive Practice, and NSW health service presenting in the field of autism.

Currently, I create resources to support families in addressing certain behaviours, to increase functional living skills and independence, or explain social situations and hidden rules.

I thoroughly enjoy working with such an incredible, caring team at Independent Kids.
