ONE DAY MAKING A DIFFERENCE AUTISM SPECTRUM WORKSHOP

Autism Spectrum: Building Trust to Keep Our Children in School and How to Get Them Back in If They Come Out!

PRESENTER: Kevin Baskerville, Leicestershire Autism Outreach Service Manager, Lead for East Midlands Hub for AET (Autism Education Trust)

AsFAN is delighted to have Kevin deliver this important workshop.

Kevin is the Leicestershire Autism Outreach Service (AOS) Manager and developed a program AOS (Intensive Support) in order to work with students who find accessing mainstream education a significant challenge. He likes to use a variety of multimedia approaches (so that you’re not just listening to someone speak!!!) and has a role-play free-zone!!! Kevin incorporates information from young people with ASD to help shape and inform practice.

As the pressures increase on our children, more and more children with ASD become school refusers. In this interactive workshop, we look at the reasons why children may refuse to attend school, we explore ways to keep our children within school but then strategies and approaches to use to ease them back.

Discussions will take place around ways to use Special Interests, developing Neuro-harmony amongst students (and staff), developing Child Centered Planning systems to help children look at possibilities but also looking at what the community, the family and the educational establishment needs to do to build confidence for all.

At the end of this workshop participants will have seen:

  • approaches that are having positive impacts elsewhere and therefore had been involved in discussions on how to make this work locally
  • a variety of strategies and resources used to build trust, confidence in young people with ASD
  • important tools to measure practice, progression and competency in order for establishments to be able to see where they are and what they need to do.
