Autism

The Schools Programme is suitable for staff working with pupils aged 5-16. The courses are:

  • Making Sense of Autism (2 hours) – basic autism awareness training for all staff;
  • Good Autism Practice (one-day course or 4 x 2 hour virtual sessions) – to support all practitioners working directly with pupils on the autism spectrum to develop their practice;
  • Extending and Enhancing Good Autism Practice (2.5 hours) - this course will enable delegates to deepen their understanding of autism and the implications for practice;
  • Leading Good Autism Practice (one-day course or 4 x 2 hour virtual sessions) – for staff in a leadership role, focusing on developing good autism provision;
  • The AET Progression Framework –  training using the framework to set learning goals and record progress;
  • Complex Needs and Participation (one-day course or 4 x 2 hour virtual sessions) – for staff working in a specialist provision to support pupils with complex needs and aid participation.

Staff working with post-16 pupils can have similar training at a pupil age appropriate level. We are happy to provide outreach services to individual schools in the wider area on a unique basis. Costs are negotiable and are on a tiered approach.
