Making Sense of Autism Early Years (Cancelled)

Starts: Tuesday 10 May 2022 - 09:00 - 11:00
Venue : Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, London, NW1 1BD map
Who is this event for
All School Staff
What does this event cover
This module is an awareness-raising module for all practitioners in Early Years settings, whether they be teachers, learning support assistants, school meal supervisors, or taxi?drivers.

The module provides an introduction to autism and some initial reasonable adjustments that need to be considered when working with autistic children.

It also provides input on the creation and use of a one-page profile for individual children. Although not all practitioners who come into contact with the child will be involved in the creation of a one-page profile, all practitioners will benefit from having access to one-page profiles for individual autistic children.

Venue : Virtual CPD Session, Digital Classroom, Virtual CPD Session map
Who is this event for

What does this event cover
The Healthy Conversations training was designed by the Camden Health and Wellbeing Team with input from the Camden and Islington Public Health team and the Brandon Centre. It was developed in response to staff feedback following the Camden Can conversations and rising obesity levels in the Borough. The training aims to support participants to understand readiness to change, identify opportunities for conversations on healthy weight and build confidence, techniques and skills for effective conversations and practice.

The Healthy Conversations training is 6 hours and consists of two sessions (half -day each) delivered 4-6 weeks apart with supported practice in between. There is also an option for nursery staff that is delivered as three, two hour sessions with supported practice in between session two and three.

The sessions will be delivered by two of our Health Improvement Practitioners.

• Setting the scene/Why are we doing this work?
• Stages of change
• Encouraging behaviour change
• Opportunities for conversation
• Conversation skills
• Factors that impact a child’s weight
Obstacles and barriers
• Practicing skills, techniques and conversations
• Key messages
• Relevant services and how to signpost or refer

Supported practice
Between sessions, participants will be asked to hold at least one conversation about healthy weight or health behaviours and bring learning to the next session, where barriers and obstacles will be explored. Participants will be supported between sessions with resources, advice, and information.


Please note
This training will take place on MS Teams
There are 3 sessions between Tuesday 10 May 2022 and Tuesday 7 June 2022
