AET Early Years Autism and Anxiety Training
This module on autism and anxiety will provide delegates with an understanding of what we mean by anxiety, how it appears in autistic children (CYP), what the key triggers are, and what supporting staff can do to support autistic pupils. It is designed so that the training can be delivered to staff working with different age groups and in mainstream and specialist school settings.
