Understanding Autism in the Early Years
A one day course to support parents and professionals working with children with ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition) in the Early Years.
We start by looking at the theories of autism, before moving on to explore different aspects of the condition.
We look in detail at strategies to support communication and behaviour, as well as increasing our understanding of how sensory processing difficulties and anxiety impacts on how our children cope on a day to day basis. We link these strategies into the overarching principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
To give you a better understanding and awareness of the autistic spectrum and the way that it affects young children within an educational setting and at home.
To highlight strategies proven to support young children on the autistic spectrum.
