Our training workshops are very popular and often over-subscribed. These are usually led by your needs and suggestions, or common themes which crop up in our work with schools. They all contribute to more effective classroom behaviour management strategies and better support for students with ASC and learning needs. But in doing so, we explore issues such as; ‘The Power of Language’, ‘Sensory and Sorry’, ‘Demand Avoidance – Pathological or Perennial?’, ‘Resources and Sources’ (very practical session) and ‘Differentiated and Dynamic Classroom Language’. These can be requested and will be laid on subject to demand. We are always keen to receive feedback and ideas for what you would find useful, too, so please do email us with any thoughts. Equally for our podcasts.
