Are you a teacher, SENCo, parent or children's professional wanting to further your knowledge and skills in supporting autistic children with positive impact?

Perhaps you want to learn how to meet the holistic needs of children with social communication and sensory processing differences?

There are lots of things to consider when supporting the very unique and personalised abilities and needs of autistic children and young people, to ensure you are giving them endless opportunities to reach their potential.

Autistic minds think and learn in different ways and therefore it is necessary to adapt your teaching, communication and environment to enhance learning. The thing is:

Good autism practise is good practice for everyone

so every child and young person can benefit.

What may seem to be small adjustments can really make a difference. I know on a personal level, as well as professional, having spent the last 12 years teaching many incredible autistic young people with a range of abilities and complex needs.

"Steph has broken the course down well, into interesting segments, with time for reflection tasks, which really help you to think about your own settings. It's thought provoking, as to what you may bring to your classroom already, but also, what you can improve on, to make your communication better, creating the best outcomes, for everyone. Can't wait to put it into practise."

- Michelle Cardy

"Fantastic for staff working with children with SEN. I am on the full 8-in-1 courses and after just completing this first course, I have already recommended it to my school as CPD for all new staff as it gives a very broad and balanced overview of the knowledge needed to support autistic learners."

- Heather White

It can be a real struggle trying to work out the best ways to support children, especially when each child is so different and has their own strengths and challenges.

This is why I want to equip you with a wide range of 'tools', strategies and resources, so that you can draw upon them in different situations, as and when needed.

The courses contain strategies and best practices from evidence-based approaches as well as my own personal experiences of positive impact and how this has helped specific children and young people.

After all, when you actually see life-changing, positive impact yourself, whether its developed language, reduced challenging behaviour, progressed learning or perhaps enhanced attention skills, I feel it must be shared so other children and young people can benefit.
