One of the services we offer is training, support and consultation to a number of schools and organisations.
This can be for any type of school or organisation with the package is individually tailored to suit your specific needs.
For example, in the past year alone we have delivered training to small groups of teaching assistants (or LSA’s) who are supporting young children diagnosed with autism in mainstream placements.
We have completed two and three day workshops in schools about the use of evidenced-based practice in the classroom.
We have given support and consultation to SENCo’s and senior staff about writing ‘SMART’ IEP targets, creating behaviour plans, adapting curriculum and efficient ways to monitor progress.
We have run brief theory-training followed by several weeks of practical hands on training in classes. (From our own experience and the research coming out regarding competency, practical, hands-on, in the class training has far more impact and validity.)
We have worked with a large number of schools in constructing integration plans that enable students to successfully integrate into their placement and fade out our support.
We have given a number of talks to parent support and Autism specific organisations on teaching social skills, behaviour management, daily living skills and curriculum planning.
We have run a Summer School program that enables teachers and parents to see how small groups and classes can be run for children and young people with and without disabilities.
Our training team has a wide variety of experience in different settings, age groups and learning levels. We will work with any school or organisation who shares our commitment to evidence-based practice, pursuing excellence for their staff and success for their students!
We will work with you in constructing a clear, competency based training package that will actually make a difference in the areas that matter that to you.
For example- If you wanted one of our SLT’s to deliver a training on communication- we could do that. If you wanted one of Consultants to provide training on Behaviour Analysis in the classroom and around the school- we could do that. If you wanted one of our teachers to provide training on classroom management and integration- we could do that. If you wanted our OT to deliver a training on activities of daily living- we could do that…
