In this policy paper from the SEN Policy Research Forum, leading experts in SEND discuss current issues, including involving schools and families in commissioning, educational psychology and Alternative Provision. Some creative solutions are detailed.
These training materials were commissioned in response to a Government recommendation, following the Lamb Inquiry (2009)
The materials consist of five learning modules, each of which focuses on one of the above areas of special educational needs and disability (SEND).
Although some of the terminology has changed, the advice is still relevant and useful.
The module’s content gives insight not just into teaching pupils with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in schools, but also how people deal with ASD as they progress into adulthood and independent living.
This module is designed for the teachers of learners on the autism spectrum. It features 20 units, including the initial 9 that discuss general good practice.
