Jim Taylor Knows Autism - Session 2

Jim Taylor Knows Autism- Online Session Two: Supporting transitions in School Age Childcare for children with autism

Online Learning Session - 25th March 2024, 10am - 11:30am

This session is designed for those who participated in the online session with autism expert Jim Taylor in December. In this follow-on session we shall consider how services can support children on the autistic spectrum settle into school age childcare. Topics that will be considered, include:

What information do we want to gather about children and what would we like parents to share with us?

Are we being upfront with parents about the limitations in levels of support the service can offer?

What adaptations are realistic and possible for a service?

There will be opportunity to ask questions and have discussions.
