Event description

Description

Autism training is now compulsory for Teachers & Teaching Staff

Help children reach their learning potential, help improve their self-confidence and help them to build friendships

With three different streams to choose from, attendees can select the material that is most relevant to them. We offer excellent value All Day tickets for those who want to stay for the full day.

This event is a great opportunity to:

  • learn insight and strategies from people who really live with the condition
  • meet and chat with other people
  • find out what information and support is available locally
  • see and purchase the amazing range of the girl with the curly hair books

This event is suitable for:

  • Teachers and teaching staff
  • Parents and carers

Schedule

Talk 1: Managing autism in the classroom

Autistic children might find learning in a typical classroom environment difficult. Understand what some of their difficulties are and learn strategies that are easy to implement and can benefit the rest of the class too. Watch an award-winning short animated film about a day at primary school for The Girl with the Curly Hair

Talk 2: Primary to secondary transition

A lot of difficulties actually begin when an autistic child goes to secondary school. Primary teachers and secondary teachers can work together to make this transition much easier, reducing the likelihood the child will suffer from anxiety and low mood during adolescence

Workshop: Understanding challenging behaviour

Autistic children are commonly described as having ‘challenging behaviour.’ We will look at the underlying reasons for this behaviour and suggest strategies to manage it. We think you’ll find that once you understand the reasons no longer does their behaviour seem challenging – it actually makes a lot of sense! This session will help you see things from another point of view. Understand their view and lessons will be much easier for the whole class

Refreshments

Refreshments are available but lunch is not provided

Exhibitors

We are offering exhibition space at great value too (just £50).

An exhibition stand means that you will have a table to display your information in the room where the training takes place. Participants will be able to talk to you during breaks and lunch. We will introduce you to the group or invite you to introduce yourself.

If you wish to ask any questions about the exhibitor space, or any other matter regarding the day, please feel free to email Sam Ramsay, Manager via sam@thegirlwiththecurlyhair.co.uk and she will be pleased to help you.
