Support for Schools
Do you have pupils with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who are not functioning well day-to-day? They might be sad and withdrawn, or they might be highly anxious. They may be refusing to come into school, their grades may be affected, and their behaviour may be challenging because of their distress.
We know that children with poor social skills are more likely to experience problems in each of these areas and that these problems often continue into adulthood. We also know that social skills can be taught and learnt and that children who get this help and support are generally happier.
The best or most effective way to teach social skills is in a group setting, within an environment where the child is most likely to practice the skills. For this reason, we offer a group intervention package to schools.
We will support schools to identify suitable pupils, co-facilitate weekly group sessions, and give guidance on using the approach between sessions.
We will also provide a report at the end of the group to evidence the progress made.
