Autism & Education - Exeter


Autism in Education Learn how autism might affect a child’s education and sensible, practical, inclusive strategies to make their experiences more positive This event will look at the difficulties that autistic children might have during their education. We understand that managing a whole class can be hard work, so the strategies we suggest are likely to benefit the whole class as well as make your teaching more effective. Teaching children empathy from a young age for example, can really make a huge difference and can result in an overall calmer classroom. With three different streams to choose from, attendees can select the material that is most relevant to them. We offer excellent value All Day tickets for those who want to stay for the full day.

What can a teacher or teaching assistant do to best support them? 11.15am-11.30am BREAK 11.30am-12.45pm Talk 2: Primary to secondary transition Change can be extremely difficult for autistic people. Unless carefully managed by primary teachers, secondary teachers and parents together, the transition to secondary school can be horrendous for autistic children. This talk will look at ways teachers and parents can work together to make this transition smoother. A child who settles in well at the start of secondary school may be far less likely to have mental health problems during adolescence. 12.45pm-1.15pm LUNCH (Lunch is not provided) 1.15pm-3.15pm Workshop: Understanding challenging behaviour Many of the behaviours demonstrated by autistic children are commonly described as “challenging.” We explore what “challenging” really means and consider whether a more accurate description of “challenging” might actually be “atypical. Is it a bit more accurate therefore, to say that behaviours neurotypical people are not used to can be perceived as challenging? We look at the underlying reasons for these unusual behaviours exhibited by autistic children. We think you will find that once you understand what the reasons are, you will see the child in a different, more positive light. There are some straightforward strategies that can be used to manage this behaviour, leading to a much happier child and a more peaceful classroom. Exhibitors We are offering exhibition space at great value too (just £105), so if you would like to have a stand at our event, purchase a ticket or get in touch to discuss the arrangements
