SEN and Disabilities Seminar Series 2023/24

Presented by Sarah Golding, Autism Team, Nottingham City SEND Support

Making Sense of Autism is accredited by the Autism Education Trust (AET) and is nationally recognised.

This seminar will give you a better understanding and awareness of autism and the way it affects pupils in school. It will support you to: 

  • extend your understanding of how autism affects pupils in school
  • increase your expertise in recognising a pupil’s individual strengths and differences
  • develop your skills in identifying barriers to learning for autistic pupils
  • develop your understanding of what “reasonable adjustments” need to be made to support an autistic pupil in your setting
