All delegates will be able to:

  • Identify the four key areas of difference that need to be taken into account.
  • Know the importance of understanding the individual pupil and their profile of strengths and areas for development.
  • Identify the key areas to help pupils on the autism spectrum build positive relationships with staff, peers, families and people in the community.
  • Develop an awareness of the sensory and communication differences that pupils may experience.

Good Autism Practice

The ‘Good Autism Practice’ training has been developed by the AET to support all practitioners working with children and young people on the autism spectrum in mainstream and specialist settings to develop their practice.

What will the course cover?

The training will:

  • enable practitioners to develop their knowledge and understanding of autism.
