Autism and Girls

The Communication and Interaction Team (C&I) are delivering a workshop designed for school staff to develop their knowledge of and skills in supporting girls with autism, both pre- and post- diagnosis.
Audience: SENCos, INCOs, teachers with specific responsibility.  All key stages.

This is a half day workshop and will cover the following topics:

  • Why has there traditionally been such a pronounced (1:4) gender difference in diagnosis rates?
  • Key areas of difference in relation to girls with autism
  • Pre-diagnosis indicators
  • Key strategies in relation to both universal and targeted approaches
  • Working with parents
  • Useful resources and links

The workshop is interactive and focussed on positive outcomes for pupils. A key outcome will be for delegates to develop a ‘provision checklist’, which can be applied to their setting in practical terms.

The course also offers the opportunity for professional networking and sharing of good practise.

"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
