School Improvement & Development Conference 2023: Book your early-bird place

Positive Approaches to Understanding and Supporting Learners with ASD

Autistic spectrum disorder affects both communication and behaviour. While diagnosis can happen at any stage in life, it is often referred to as a developmental disorder, as it often shows signs fairly early on, and can be the cause of some emotional immaturities for some learners. We use the word spectrum because of the wide range of symptoms children with ASD can experience. This course will explore this wide range of variations and identify ways of working with individuals to support their development as well-rounded learners.

  • Practical ideas to support learners with ASD
  • Understanding the symptoms and variations
  • Creating an appropriate learning environment
  • How to make a range of reasonable and manageable adjustments
