Girls and Autism
"We're failing girls at the moment. We are doing many thousands of them a great disservice. They are either not being picked up in the first place, but if they ask for help they are being turned away. Even if they are referred for diagnosis, they are commonly rejected." Dr Judith Gould.
Come and learn from Emma Turver our specialist teacher and mother of an autistic daughter, who will focus on the stories of autistic girls and women. This half day course will equip you to understand girls and autism better.
Emma will talk about her experiences identifying and supporting autistic girls in schools and what we need to be aware of. It is true that many girls present differently to the typically ‘male’ presentation of autism. We will look at masking, mirroring, emotional regulation and mental wellbeing.
Although this course is aimed at learning about autism in girls, there will be autistic boys that share characteristics and challenges that girls do. Everyone is welcome at this course.

How To Write Social Stories
Many schools are advised to use Social Stories with autistic pupils but not everyone is sure what they are or how to write them. They can be an effective support if written well, but there is also a lot of misunderstanding of how to write social stories resulting in inefective, and sometimes harmful attempts to change child’s behaviour.
This course will teach you how to write a social story, how to personalise them and when and when not you should use them with autistic pupils. You will write your own story and receive a copy of Lynn McCann’s book - “Stories that Explain” a collection of over 60 editable social stories for you to use in your setting. This course is suitable for teachers, SENCOs, TAs, parents and anyone working with autistic young people.
