Are you or your staff members wanting to develop knowledge about autism?

Are you a parent wanting to understand your child better?

Perhaps you’re looking for effective, practical ways to support a child and their learning?

Understanding autism and trying to decipher the best ways to assist a child’s learning can feel overwhelming. 
Whether you’re struggling to maintain engagement or wanting to teach a new concept, seeing life through the child’s eyes will put you in a much better position to know what to do, and how to do it.

It’s important to remember that every child and young person is unique.

Each individual has their own abilities, interests and needs. So the better you understand their strengths and needs, the more effective your support will be.

Communication, relationships, and sensory processing all have a big impact on the way a child will engage with learning or interact with a task. By understanding the scope of these areas, you will be in a better position to identify and adapt your support accordingly.
When you can recognise the specific needs of a child, you’ll be able to choose and implement positive methods for learning with confidence. 

To learn more, I invite you to enrol on the course
Understanding Autism and Learning
This short course will broaden your knowledge of autism and help you identify the personalised and unique needs of autistic individuals.

You will be guided through practical, supportive ways to adapt your methods of support, behaviour and environment, giving you a 'toolbox' of helpful skills and strategies.

More Testimonials

twitter testimonial understanding autism and learning online training

"The course was fantastic, Steph covered a lot of ground in detail but also manageable bite-sized chunks - which was fantastic! One of the many important take away's for me is building an individual profile of each child, seeing their world through their eyes, not ours, and this course is a great resource towards that goal."

- Anonymous

"A great overview of autism and the impact on learning. Excellent for teachers/practitioners who are new to the field and looking to learn how to hone their craft."

- Emily Curtis, Elementary Autism Teacher

"Whilst in Lockdown, I began wondering/worrying about the children I should be working with and I happened upon Steph's Podcasts. I began listening and found them very insightful. So when this course came up, I jumped at the chance. It is really informative and Steph is very professional and knowledgable. I am so glad I signed up and have recommended it to my colleagues."

- Rachael Longworth

“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"
