Update to our learning programme

As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.

Our webinar programme can be found here.

This list of webinars will be added to regularly so please do revisit the site to see what’s new.

We believe it is important that the sector continues to build resilient networks, share helpful resources and develop the skills our workforce needs to provide high-quality support to children and young people.

As such we will be rescheduling and/or changing the format of our upcoming events. Please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with everyone who has booked a place at an April -May event to confirm arrangements.

Our office is now closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email
events@childreninscotland.org.uk

About this event

This training workshop will help you understand how autism can affect an individual's view of the world by using the most up to date resources such as the new and improved Autism Toolbox.

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 behaviour
  • Creating more inclusive language and communication
  • Exploring further strategies, resources and signposting.
