Who is this module for?
This module is for childminders and practitioners in a range of Early Years Settings, including preschools, nurseries, children’s centres, and schools.
In this module, we take delegates through some of the distinct learning needs, strengths, and difficulties that autistic children share, whilst helping delegates to take note of individual differences. Participants are given the opportunity to start thinking about a particular autistic child and their learning needs, along with ways in which they can adjust and adapt their own practice and the learning environment.
The aims of ‘Good autism practice in the Early Years’ are to support practitioners who work directly with autistic children to:
- Develop their knowledge of Good Autism Practice.
- Understand the importance of working with others to support the child.
- Create and deliver a plan to ensure progress.
- Extend their understanding of how they may support a young autistic child to develop and progress.
- Further reflect on reasonable adjustments that can be made to improve their practice in working with autistic children.
After completing ‘Good autism practice in the Early Years’, delegates will be able to:
- Understand how autism can impact on the learning and wellbeing of an autistic child.
- Understand the importance of involving the “Team around the Child” to support the child’s development.
- Consider how to remove barriers to wellbeing, participation, and learning for autistic children.
