Autism and Complex Needs

This one day session focuses on training for staff in specialist settings who support pupils on the autism spectrum who have complex needs.

Overview: This one day session focuses on training for staff in specialist settings who support pupils on the autism spectrum who have complex needs. It aims to deepen participants’ understanding of autism and ways in which they can support pupil participation, including development of their personal and EHC Plans.

This session covers similar ground to the ‘extending and enhancing good autism practice’ module but is more focused on practitioners working with school-age pupils on the autism spectrum with complex needs in specialist settings.

The training will:
  • Enable practitioners to extend their understanding of autism in relation to pupils with complex needs
  • Provide practical strategies to support practitioners as they develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of effective autism practice
  • Enable practitioners to reflect on and evaluate their own practice in relation to EHC planning for pupils with complex needs.
Who is this course suitable for?
  • Special School staff – teachers, teaching assistants and support staff
  • Other professionals working within specialist settings
  • Teachers and Teaching assistants working with pupils with complex needs

Completion of this course gives delegates free access to online resources provided through the AET website.
