ASD AWARENESS & UNDERSTANDING

‘Very professional and insightful, offering many opportunities for reflective thought on my own practice’ – Y4 Teacher

Outline

The Code of Practice 2015 states there is an obligation for teachers to have at least an awareness and basic understanding of the different Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. With about 1.1% of children in St Helens with a diagnosis of ASD it is likely that every teacher will teach a child with significant social communication difficulties or autism.

Description

This course covers the facts and figures of autism, what it is and how it impacts on children and young people. The advice and strategies focus on knowing the pupil's interests and motivation, how the environment makes a difference to the pupil's well being and behavior, the importance of relationships as well as a focus on curriculum and learning.
