TADSS Twilights

Experienced TADSS classroom practitioners in the two key areas of Autism and Sensory processing needs have worked together to develop training sessions in their area of expertise. The training aims to increase staff awareness, confidence and effectiveness and is best delivered as a whole school staff training or for large groups of staff (can be from more than one school) so that it supports embedding of best practice within the school culture.

Being Sensory Aware and Responsive
