Event Details


This essential half-day course has been designed for staff in schools and colleges, or anyone working with students with Autism, or who would like to move into this field.

More specifically lunchtime supervisors, facilities staff, volunteers, teachers and support, canteen operatives, those who work in the library/learning resources centre, mentors, student services and others. 

During unstructured time, young people with autism may find themselves becoming anxious.  This may display as unusual or relatively distressing behaviour.  It's everyone's job to know some strategies to help support these young people while they are in school or college. 

During the day delegates will develop their understanding and knowledge of Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). They will leave with reassuringly uncomplicated strategies to enable your students to enjoy the whole school or college experience.

By the end of the session, delegates will have:

• Awareness of the condition

• Awareness of sensory issues

• Understanding of possible triggers and behaviours

• Strategies to prevent behavioural outbursts

We'll include real-life scenarios for you to analyse and to replicate the approaches yourself.  When you understand more about the condition, you'll find it infinitely easier to recognise the problems and find solutions.
