As ever, our most recent training session – in association with Edge Hill University – was a great success. It was a hugely informative and interesting session on supporting children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in mainstream classrooms. Our teachers and support staff enjoyed it immensely, as you can see from this feedback:
I attended the ASD course and found it very informative. I have limited knowledge of working with children with Autism so this gave me an insight into Autism and how children might behave/react to certain situations.
I would recommend the course for Teachers and TAs who have little or no knowledge or understanding of the Autistic spectrum.
The course also discussed what to ask when attending a school for the first time such as are there any children with Autism? Do any children have specific places, habits. I also found this helpful and think many more would benefit from it.
And there’s more…
I did enjoy the ASD course on Wednesday.
I liked the presenter Helen; she had a calm and friendly manner. She filled the session with real-life anecdotal evidence which brought the material we were dealing with into perspective.
Most of all I found the course full of practical insight. By that I mean it included examples and suggestions for tactical class management as well as good resources, both literary and physical.
Overall a really good course on Autism.
Ok, one more…
The course was inspiring and Helen presents in a relaxed manner as her knowledge base is strong. I learnt new things and left buzzing with new ideas. I have gained understanding of trigger or experiences which may alter a situation and why. Very helpful. All the courses add to my skill set helping me do a better job. Thank you.
