Supporting Verbal Pupils with ASD


A practical training course for those of you teaching or supporting children and young people with autism and/or social communication needs

About the course

This NEW UPDATED practical training course is specifically designed for you if you are working in primary and secondary schools with pupils with autism or a social communication need. You will learn about the changes to the diagnostic criteria and how to manage pupils with sensory conditions in the classroom. Written as an additional module, you must have completed an Elklan core course before attending this training. (If you haven't completed a Elklan core course, please see the ten-session course Communication Support for Verbal Pupils with ASD.)

It provides a broad overview into effective communication practice with those with ASD and has plenty of ‘hands on’ activities which help to apply the learning and makes the course very interactive.

It's a great 'one stop shop' from which further training programmes in specific techniques can be explored further.

This training will provide you with:

You'll be taught a wide range of topics through the five sessions. These are fun and interactive and cover:

What is communication and where does ASD fit?
Sensory integration and ASD
Understanding the role of NVC and the importance of structure
