Good Autism Practice Schools

Starts: Thursday 14 July 2022 - 13:00 - 16:00
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 for practitioners who work with autistic pupils (5–16). It provides practitioners with practical strategies when working with autistic pupils. The module also takes participants through guidance on developing a pupil-centred education plan (PCEP) for an autistic pupil. Although only students with SEN are currently required to have a PCEP, the vision is that if, in the long term, inclusive practice is embedded in school provision, fewer pupils will require something additional to that which forms part of universal provision. Although not all staff who work with an autistic pupil will be involved in the creation of a pupil-centred education plan, all staff will benefit from being aware of the content of the PCEP.
