As committed thought leaders in SEND education, Axcis offers regular training to help registered candidates develop continued professional development (CPD) skills. Axcis London head office invites you to join the latest Autism Awareness Seminar with key speaker Robyn Steward.
Robyn Steward is a NAS ambassador, Autism consultant and the proud author of ‘The Independent Woman’s handbook to super safe living on the Autistic Spectrum’. She is a close friend of Axcis who offers regular training on Autism. Robyn has Asperger’s syndrome (a type of autism) and has dedicated her life to helping others on the spectrum.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. It is a spectrum condition, which means that while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways. Some people with autism are able to live relatively independent lives but others may have accompanying learning disabilities and need a lifetime of specialist support. People with autism may also experience over- or under-sensitivity to sounds, touch, tastes, smells, light or colours.
As part of the holistic approach of the new SEND reform it is imperative that everyone who works in schools should have an awareness of autism along with all other SEND conditions and know how deal with and identify children and young people with SEND conditions.
Robyn will not only share valuable first-hand insight but will offer you tips and strategies to assist in classroom settings.
Refreshments will be served and you will receive a certificate of attendance to add to your CPD profile.
