Many of you will receive a visit or receive a report from a specialist teacher at some point. Emma and I work on building relationship with our schools so that the teachers see us as a support and resource for them as well as someone who can help their pupils. We love to encourage and help the SENCOs too, as we understand the aspects of their job that others in the school rarely do. That's the benefit of the way we work with schools, regular half termly, monthly or weekly visits (depending on needs and funding) means we know the school, the children and their families and the staff - and they know us really well over time.
So what is a typical week for a Specialist Autism Teacher?
