“As a special school, our families and carers have found the last year very challenging in supporting our students at home. We have used the tools for teachers to help enhance and support our parents to gain skills and understand how to manage behaviour, access learning and regulate emotions.
As we have returned to school, the AET Tools for Teachers have been used to support our outreach schools to support transition back to school and create a foundation and recovery for our students.”

The AET Tools for Teachers will enable education practitioners to create personalised strategies and resources that will support the pupils they work with to thrive in their setting and gain more independence.

The AET Tools for Teachers is organised 6 key sections:
