This short workshop has been written to support children and young people with autism and the staff who support them in a school environment

We begin by sharing ideas in pairs about ASD, what it is, what is isn’t and how pupils can be identified and

We then share ideas as a group, as to current strategies, tools and experiences already used.

As we continue through the day we work through dilemmas and stresses caused by a school environment that could be causes of stress for those on the ASD spectrum and those with sensory processing difficulties.

We explore different activities, strategies and tools that could be incorporated and integrated into the school day.

Social stories, routine tasks and timetabling are discussed in depth with some time for practical paired activities

Lots of literature, further reading and handouts re activities shared throughout the day.

Course duration: 6 hours – either intensive day session or delivered on twilight or staff development days.
