Early Years Training

 

 

A three tier training programme for practitioners in early years education.

Autism affects around 1 in 100 children and adults. All professionals working in early years education settings should be prepared to support children on the autism spectrum and all staff should have a basic awareness of autism and  the needs of individual children.

This programme offers nationally delivered face-to-face training for professionals working with children under the age of 5. This programme will form an essential part of your Continuing Professional Development.

The programme can play a key role in supporting your organisation to provide its best endeavours in meeting the needs of children on the autism spectrum.

The training uses a range of teaching tools including video, case studies, problem solving scenarios, presentations and practical resources and activities.
