SATE Seminar: The Autism Friendly English Classroom

We are delighted to announce our first South Ayrshire SATE Seminar, on the 6th of September at 4.15pm in Marr College, Troon.

The approach taken will be to recognise and value your expertise as English teachers and to enable you to import understanding of autism into your classroom practice.

This session will provide an overview of the autism spectrum. There will be particular focus on the potential strengths of and challenges for autistic learners. Autistic thinking and information processing will be explored. There will also be an emphasis on the impact of the environment and the importance of wellbeing in relation to learning. There will be a focus on practical approaches, useful resources and the opportunity for discussion.

The session will be delivered by Charlene Tait, Director of Practice & Research for Scottish Autism.
