On the workshop we'll cover the autism and dyspraxia basics, explain the terminology and explore the overlap between these two conditions.
We'll explain how to work with and around a students difficulties to maximise learning outcomes.
We'll also take a look at the 'social' dimension to these two conditions and cover bullying, making friends, understanding social 'rules' and the social/emotional wellbeing of students.
Families need our support but often the relationship between practitioners and parents can be bumpy. Let's work together to get real improvements for students and their families.
We all need a little help. We'll share with you tips, techniques and strategies for success.
A workshop for SENCOs, Teachers, Assistants and Parents
A student you know might be struggling with: attention, language, reading, handwriting, coordination or self-regulation. Sometimes these difficulties come with a diagnosis like Aspergers, Autism and Dyspraxia.
Dyspraxia: Dyspraxia is an incredibly common but poorly understood condition. Whilst most teachers have heard of dyspraxia, few have a working knowledge in how to recognise and support the children in their class with dyspraxia/DCD.
10% of children have dyslexia.....most teachers will have had CPD training in dyslexia

5% of children have dyspraxia (DCD)..few teachers have received training in dyspraxia
