“I have a fairly secure knowledge and understanding of autism and have attended the AET schools good autism practice course. I would like to extend this understanding and build on what I have learnt already. I work regularly with a pupil with autism”

This half day session is designed to build on the learning developed through ‘good autism practice’ by enabling delegates to deepen their understanding of autism and the implications for practice.

The training will:

• Enable practitioners to explore theories of autism and consider the implications for practice.
• Provide practical strategies to support practitioners as they develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of effective autism practice.
• Enable practitioners to reflect on their practice and share their enhanced knowledge more widely across their organisation

This session is suitable for practitioners working with school-age pupils on the autism spectrum in mainstream services. Practitioners in specialist settings who work with pupils with complex needs should undertake the one day complex needs module.
