All the participants at a recent session on practical strategies for supporting pupils with ASD (KS3/KS4) found the session to be good or excellent and both confidence and understanding improved as a result of the training. Everyone listed a number of practical strategies they will be using to support the pupils in their school. Their learning from the training included:

– Speaker was exceptionally knowledgeable.
– This was well geared towards secondary age students and relevant to mainstream schools.
– Reinforced the need for visual communication despite working with verbal students.
– An excellent session, very informative.
– Well focussed on secondary age group.
– Appropriate strategies.
– Good range of activities and talking.
РI have learnt more about ASD and have now got some ideas to use with  my one-to-one student.
– Keep language clear and simple.
– Practical activities to use in the classroom such as the power cards.
– Reminder of being aware of children’s emotional state when they come into class.
– The effects of sensory overload and consequences of this.
– Benefits/importance of visual stories & power cards.
