This full day course is being subsidised by NYCC and the AET and places can be booked at a reduced rate of £15 per person (normally £95). The training is aimed at Early Years SENCO's or setting managers who can develop autism practice within the setting. This course provides further knowledge on autism for those who may train other staff or lead autism provision within their setting
The training is divided into four sections: Section1 - The Unique Child - Emphasises the importance of considering the individual child with autism and how their needs may be met within your setting. Section 2 - Positive Relationships - Identifies how to develop and encourage positive relationships for children with autism across the setting. Section 3 - Enabling Environment - Provides guidance on how to adapt the environment to meet the needs of children with autism. Section 4 - Learning and development - Explores how to structure learning and development to maximise the teaching and learning of children with autism.
Participants will be able to: Understand how the four areas of difference may impact on the child's ability to access the Early Years curriculum; consider ways in which the setting can maximise opportunities to develop the social interaction of children with autism and communication with parents and other professionals; support the development of autism enabling environments and understand the individual profile of learning and provide supportive strategies to encourage play and learning. Delegates attending this training will now be eligible to receive a code to access the AET Tools for Teachers resource online.
Please note that lunch is NOT provided, therefore delegates will be required to provide their own.
