Details

Note: This is a two day event. The second day takes place at the same venue on the following day. Please do not book unless you can attend both days.

Day 1

This first day focuses on the practicalities of an intervention that is motivating for both adults and children and introduces Stage 1 and 2 of the 4 Stage Attention Autism programme. It introduces the Attention Autism methodology and practice that underpins the intervention, demonstrates the practical techniques and covers a range of other strategies for other areas such as problem solving and personalising interventions.

Outcomes include an understanding of how to engage children and teach them to focus, and sustain and their attention, both individually and in groups. Benefits to individuals and teams include confident and fluent use of: dynamic visually supported communication skills; adapted and modified language to increase understanding and spontaneous expressive communication; delivery of activities that inspire a child’s attention and motivates communication.

Day 2

The second day focuses on the practicalities of an intervention that is motivating for both adults and children and introduces Stage 3 and 4 of the 4 stage Attention Autism programme. It explores how communication and social interaction is developed through Attention Autism methodology and practice. Strategies for weaving objectives in these areas through intervention is demonstrated using activities and film footage.

Outcomes include an understanding of how to build on engagement and teach children how to successfully shift their attention, and focus and sustain their attention adding the complications of transitions. Benefits to individuals and teams include confident and fluent use of: dynamic visually supported communication skills; adapted and modified language to increase understanding and spontaneous expressive communication; delivery of activities that inspire a child’s attention and motivates communication.

Coaching for Level 1

Alongside this training we have put together a Level 1 Coaching package, which can be booked at the same time as the training. This coaching package includes 2 x 75 minute online workshops covering the core strategies, demonstrations, hints and tips and individual feedback on 2 films.
Workshop 1 - Wednesday 21st February 10:30 - 11:45
First film due - 28th February
Workshop 2 - Tuesday 5th March 11:30 - 12:45
Second film due - 13th March

We ask you to send us 2 films during the course of you going through the stages delivering the session to camera. No children are necessary in the film, a row of chairs or teddies will do so there are no complications about getting permissions to film.
Following the first workshop online we ask you to send us a film of stages 1 which we will watch and give you individual feedback in detail. We run the next workshop and ask for another film, this time Stages 1,2 &3. Again we give you Individual feedback and on meeting the standard for Level 1 we will happily send you a certificate to say you have done so!

We provide tea and coffee throughout the day. Guildford High Street is 10 minutes away and there are lots of choices and options for lunch available in the supermarkets/coffee shops etc. We provide handouts for the day. The workshop is very practical and we will be getting down on the floor and trying out activities so please leave the Gucci at home and come in comfortable casual clothes.

Recording and Photos
Please note that there may not be any recording or photographs taken during the workshop. It is very difficult to persuade parents to give permission for films of their child to be used for training as concerns about where the images will be seen are huge. In order to get permission I give my word to parents that there is NO recording or filming during the workshop. In this way parents can feel confident. Once the workshop is finished there is time allowed for attendees to take photographs of any activities or resources produced in the day.
