In Courses and Events

Event Date: 25/01/18
Provider: Bedford Training and Assessment Centre
Location: Bedford

Course Details:

Autism is a common hidden disability known by the terms ASD/ASC and is a spectrum condition affecting children to a greater or lesser extent. It is suggested that 1 in 100 children have autism, but the reality is actually far greater where traits are recognised but no diagnosis made.

70% of children on the autism spectrum are educated in mainstream environments, however 60% of teachers say that they do not feel adequately trained in how to support those children (www.ambitiousaboutautism.org.uk)

This course explores how to recognise the traits of autism and how they may display, but more importantly how to support children and young people who are showing these traits!

We look at real life situations, stories and anecdotes, find out what worked well, what did not work so well and why. We help you in identifying the best practices when supporting children on the spectrum and you will leave the course equipped with a greater understanding and more knowledge about supporting the children in your care.
