Research states that currently 1:68 children may be on the autism spectrum1 Schools are facing situations where children may or may not have a diagnosis, but yet need more support in the classroom and during school life.
Take a day out of your busy schedule to focus on what really matters. We are not going to give you theory, but use over 30 years of experience to provide real, practical and meaningful ideas and strategies. These can be taken back and used on a daily basis to support those on the autism spectrum and those with other social communication difficulties in the classroom, playground and throughout the school.
This Professional Development and Training Day is led by Wendy Usher author of 13 award winning books for the sector, acclaimed national speaker and prior government consultant on inclusion and play.
The event takes place at Milton Keynes Play Association – directions will be sent to you on booking
