New SEND seminar programme

Posted on: 8th September 2018

We are delighted to launch our new series of SEND Seminars that over the coming months will cover a range of topics from Autism to the Working Memory and Dyslexia to SEND Tribunals. The aim of this programme of one-hour seminars is to improve the school experiences and outcomes for our SEND pupils by increase the knowledge and skills of those in the classroom supporting them. Therefore, they would be beneficial to SENCOs, classroom teachers, teaching assistants, learning support assistants and student support officers across all phases of education. 


On Wednesday 17th October, our first seminar, will explore Social Anxiety for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Child and Educational Psychologist, Allan Willis, will discuss the causes, signs and symptoms, and interventions and classroom support for social anxiety associated with pupils on the Autism Spectrum. 9.30am – 10.30am
