Making the Curriculum Accessible to Autistic Children


Suitable for Primary and Special School Staff - Can be delivered In House and tailored to any age group

This course looks at the ways in which autistic pupils can be supported to access the curriculum, achieve and develop confidence in their learning. 
The aim is for teachers and teaching assistants to:
  • Understand the different ways autistic students think and learn 
  • Understand how autistic pupils acquire skills, knowledge and understanding throughout the curriculum 
  • Develop strategies and resources to enable them to access learning
The objectives:
  • Understand why an autistic pupil might refuse or be unable to write.
  • Discover why phonics may not be the best way to teach reading.
  • Working with the pupil’s interests, harnessing their learning.
  • Sensory processing and its effects on learning. 
  • Filling in the gaps, looking at typical and atypical development and how to develop knowledge and concepts that might have not developed in the typical way. 
  • Practical ways of teaching autistic pupils, helping them learn and develop as an independent learner.  
  • Approaching tests, group work and other challenges.
