Lynn's Primary book has arrived!

How to support children with ASC in primary school 

book arrives 2.2.17This book, published by LDA arrived in the office on the 2nd February and as you can see, Lynn is delighted to have recieved a copy of her words in print.

Lynn said' "After two years of writing the primary and secondary books, it's amazing to see what I have written actually in print.  It's a book for mainstream teachers, TAs and SENCOs, full of practical advice and examples.  It works through the primary years from the early years to the transition to high school in Year 6.  I hope that it will be a handbook to help teachers support a child with autism all through their primary years.

A Social Story(TM)  supporting a Dyslexic Pupil

I was asked to write a Social Story(TM) with a pupil in a school who doesn't have ASC but is struggling with his self esteem because he has Dyslexia.  I love to write Social Stories(TM) with the pupil themselves and this one helped him so much that we agreed it would be good for other pupils who struggle to read and write to be able to read it too. The word "ACCOMPLISHED" was one offered by the pupil, and I thought it was great.

Chaucer Sept14 4

All my training sessions are made-to-measure.  I will talk to staff before I come to find out what you do already and what issues you are needing to cover.
