Engagement in Learning

The Engagement in Learning course is aimed at anyone working with people with autism who may find it difficult to attend to tasks for any length of time or those who have specific interested who want to follow their own agenda.

This is often, but not exclusively, younger children in early years or primary settings or those children with autism who also have learning difficulties.

The course will give practical teaching strategies to help build up attention and offer advice on developmentally appropriate activities. We will discuss how to increase inclusion and social skills in small group activities. We will highlight and signpost to effective approaches such as intensive interaction and attention autism.

We will run this course face to face at Newfield so that you can see modelling and practical demonstrations alongside resources examples. There will be opportunities for group discussions and opportunities to ask questions.

This course is run over a half day (2 and a half hours) and costs £35 per delegate. Refreshments will be provided.
