Autism Specialist Programme - Understanding and Working with ASD

‘Autism is a spectrum condition. All autistic people share certain difficulties, but being autistic will affect them in different ways. Some autistic people also have learning disabilities, mental health issues or other conditions, meaning people need different levels of support. All people with autism learn and develop. With the right sort of support, all can be helped to live a more fulfilling life of their own choosing’. (The National Autistic Society, 2016)

The Impact of Sensory Processing in the Classroom (EVENT FULL)

‘Sensory processing is a term that refers to the way the nervous system receives messages from the senses and turns them into appropriate motor and behavioural responses.
