What is happening in the world of autism locally, nationally and around the globe.
Autism Hour in Shops
Published: 18 March 2019
As part of our post 16 curriculum our students work towards developing their life skills, this can include trips to local shops and supermarkets, these visits can prove difficult for our young people due to the busy, noisy and over stimulating environment.
Autism and Intensive Interaction
Published: 21 February 2019
We had a number of Valentine’s Day activities happening here at Newfield this week, making cards, selling gifts and joining in with the Valentine’s disco. I felt that this would be a good opportunity to talk about early stages of social communication and an approach we use here called ‘Intensive Interaction’.
Caring for Animals
Published: 07 February 2019
Lots of research has been undertaken over the years about how animals can help people with Autism. Some have suggested that animals provide an opportunity to create a social bond and even reduce anxiety. Whatever the benefits may be, it is certainly true that here at Newfield, many of our students enjoy visiting animals at the farm.
