To help children form and sustain relationships, we can support their development in the areas of play and social interaction.

It's also important to help their understanding of the world around them including those often tricky 'social norms' and non verbal cues!

During this course we will break down the learning of turn taking, play and social skills, to support children to form meaningful relationships.

We will also explore the importance of understanding social masking, what to look out for and how to help.

After the course you will have practical skills and strategies to support children to learn social and interaction skills, that you can implement straight away!

Hi, I’m Steph Reed, your teacher!

Over the past 12 years, I have taught many autistic children, with a wide variety of abilities and complex needs.

I now help schools and services ensure high quality autism provision and practice, enabling children to achieve and maximise their potential.

I have tailored these online courses to give you accessible, and bite-size, background knowledge in evidence-based approaches, as well as the practical understanding in how to implement strategies and importantly, ensure impact on learning.

“In the time that Steph has been working with my school, I have been able to see a sustained improvement in the provision offered. This has been the case in the growing knowledge and skills of the staff she has worked alongside, the physical environment provided for pupils with ASD and the outcomes for those pupils"
