Autism in Schools
We have been participating in the Autism in Schools Project for the past 20 months. This has enabled us to access support from the Sheffield parent / carer forum and access to an intervention for students entitled ‘Understanding Myself’ led by KIDS. As a school we have also had access to a range of training materials to develop and embed our practice at Chaucer.
In the spring of 2022 we agreed to contribute to a training video which included how we support students with ASD, both diagnosed and those awaiting assessment. This video is now being shared city wide to support training of school staff to develop skills and expertise to ensure young people across the city access the right support. A trailer has now been released that can be shared publicly.
We are really proud of the fact that Chaucer’s good practice has been recognised, and you can have a brief look at our contribution in the video below.
