About this event

This workshop will raise awareness of how autism may present itself in children and young people. You will explore how autism can affect the sensory experiences of learning and living in different environments. You will learn how autism can affect a child or young person’s experience of your setting, and how you can make reasonable adjustments to both your communication style and setting to create a more inclusive environment.

Key learning

  • Understanding how autism may present itself in children and young people
  • Focusing on sensory issues, environment and understanding behaviours
  • Creating more inclusive language and communication
  • Exploring further strategies, resources and signposting.
