Attention Autism - Day 2, Holiday Inn Ellesmere Port - Cheshire Oaks, Wednesday, 06. November 2019

Following on from our successful training events last year, we are once again delighted to host this event with the superb national speaker. Gina Davies has trained staff at Hinderton School and has transformed our practice. This has played a huge part in our Outstanding Ofsted rating and Accreditation by the National Autistic Society. Gina's 'Bucket Therapy' approached has energised our teaching and inspired staff and pupils.
Suitable for SENCOs, staff working 1-1 with pupils with autism, Speech and Language Therapists, Special School teachers and School Leaders.
This course explores the impact of autism spectrum disorders on the development of attention skills and the impact this has on a child’s ability to learn both 1:1 and in a group. We identify ways the learning strengths of children can be exploited and how fragile new skills can be developed.  Day 2 Explores the ways in which communication development can be targeted and nurtured within sessions ensuring the needs of the children can be sensitively met whether preverbal, non-verbal able to speak. The focus is on building functional social communication, understanding and spontaneous communication. The intervention looks at the power of shared good times for building engaged learning and trusting relationships where interaction, problem communication and learning can flourish. The workshop provides an opportunity to solve any issues that have arisen in application of the first 2 stages of the programme in practice and then introduces Stage 3 Shifting Attention and Stage 4 focusing, sustaining and shifting attention including a transition to independent working. Methods for planning and recording sessions, and linking the intervention to the curriculum and personalised planning for a child is incorporated into the day. Ideas and activities are shared and the attendees are then ready to set up and run the full programme! 
Day 1 must have already been completed.
