Online ASD Teachers Support Group
DATE: Thursday, 3rd December 2020
TIME: 4pm to 5.30pm
ONLINE VIA ZOOM
The aim of this session is to introduce a small group of teachers who are wishing to learn and share ideas about working with children who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I hope to create a supportive atmosphere where teachers can share ideas which they have learned through their own unique experiences in a variety of Special Educational settings.
Caroline will lead this group, and together with the other educators, decide on the topics that will be spoken about and worked on during the sessions.
Members will be able to discuss ideas, build on their own confidence in the area of SEN and meet others who are working in similar settings.
The main topic which will be looked at in this session will be ‘Writing and Using Social Stories.’ There will also be ample opportunity to discuss any situations that may have arose in your classroom setting this year and to hopefully brainstorm solutions to these together.
