“I have a leadership role in my school or setting and part of this role is to develop provision across the school for pupils with a diagnosis of autism. I have a fairly secure knowledge and understanding of autism”

This one day session is designed for staff who have a leadership role that includes responsibility for developing provision for pupils on the autism spectrum within a school setting.

The training will:

• Enhance delegate’s knowledge and understanding of good autism practice
• Help delegates to question, evaluate and develop autism practice within their setting
• Provide delegates with the tools to audit staff skills and identify training needs
• Develop skills and knowledge so that delegates can support their organisation to meet/exceed the requirements of external reviewers such as Ofsted and be compliant with legislative requirements.

This session will bring lead practitioners from a range of organisations together to discuss, share and develop practice and understanding. It is suitable for practitioners working with school-age pupils on the autism spectrum in both mainstream and specialist services.
