I was thankful for the opportunity to attend the course. The course has opened my eyes to the world of Autism and the pressures that students who manage Autism face in their day to day lives.

Teacher
Autistic Spectrum Disorders

This course made me more aware of the individual challenges students face day to day. It has also shown me, that there are many useful tools that can be used to help VI students. I'm now in a better position to assist and learn new strategies. I would recommend this course to others.

Learning Support Assistant
Vision Impairment

As SENCO in the school, I feel I now have more knowledge to support colleagues when asked questions about pupils in their class.

SENCO
Autistic Spectrum Disorders

My classroom practice, and that of my TA has become more effective. I have found the professional support and advice from the team, the forums and the group discussions with colleagues, useful and informative and will definitely be revisiting the course materials to support my practice.

Teacher
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

I would recommend this training to anyone who is currently working with individuals with autistic spectrum disorders. It has provided me with a lot of factual information, such as the characteristics of ASD, and the behaviours of these characteristics and their causes. I particularly enjoyed the intervention module as it provided me with a wide range of strategies and intervention packages – some of these I had never heard of and am very excited to use within my own practice!

Early Years Practitioner
Autistic Spectrum Disorders

Having now done this course I am aware that sometimes I 'set the bar' too high when setting a specific task/target and that I need to differentiate the work according to the children's ability. I very much agree with the statement that “knowledge of the learner can maximise the impact of teaching” and apart from the occasional 'blip' I would to think that I do 'know' the children I teach and that this knowledge does help me deliver a more effective lesson including the element of fun and surprise!

Effective Teaching & Learning

After doing this course I now evaluate all the lessons I am involved in, especially the literacy lesson I teach. I have now changed the way I work with the less able children of the group, instead of them all doing the same I have given them slightly different ways to learn the sounds and words we work on. I have already seen an improvement in all of them. Working at their pace has definitely helped their learning.

Effective Teaching & Learning

The three key things that I have learned are the difference between dyspraxia and developmental coordination disorder; the strategies of supporting pupils' motor skills, including modelling, shaping, chaining and prompting and the assessment record and motor skills difficulties checklists, which will enhance my interventions effectively.

Teaching Assistant
Motor Coordination Difficulties

The training has made me review interventions in conjunction with learning theory. This is a much more focused approach and I will be able to use it again in the future. I like to work with SMART target setting, as it helps me stay driven, so every opportunity to practise this is valuable.

Education Consultant
Effective Teaching & Learning

It has been a considerable time since I completed this course and have been able to use what I have learned supporting Child B with a number of other children with varying degrees of need since. My practice is now more informed and I am much more confident in my own ability to support the children.

HLTA
Dyslexia

I will now think twice before telling children to 'hurry up - you're always last!'. At milk drinking time and changing for PE I have stopped to analyse what the cause is before saying anything this term.

Teacher
Motor Coordination Difficulties

The ABC intervention was interesting for me and I think this is the section I have taken the most from. I have met some challenging behaviour in classes and this has helped me to understand and identify the types of behaviour and the triggers for it. Within my class I now sit back and think about the types of behaviour and look beyond them to see if I can identify the antecedent and prevent it from happening. I have enjoyed this and have seen a great improvement in my current class.
