Lynn McCann brings you a full day course based on her books; "How to support pupils with ASC in primary school" and "How to support students with ASC in secondary school", to give school staff knowledge, understanding and resources to enable them to make school successful for their autistic pupils.
Who is it for:
Primary, Secondary and Special school staff. Parents and other agencies who work with autistic children and young people.
What is autism and how to identify the needs of individuals.
How to support communication, social interaction, thinking and sensory needs.
How autism may look different in girls.
Practical teaching and learning strategies to use in the classroom. (We will work in groups of primary and secondary staff to look at strategies suitable for each Key stage).
How to change the environment to make it more accessible.
how we perceive challenging behaviour in autistic pupils and what we can do to understand why the pupil is behaving that way. We use the 'iceberg method' to work through understanding behaviours through the autism lens.
