Thank you to Gemma Dunn and everyone who attended our coffee morning, this morning! It was an excellent opportunity to pick up some tips and ideas, share some strategies that work at home and to ask questions about other things we can do to support some of the difficulties with behaviour related to Autism.
Gemma has kindly shared with us the slideshow that she presented to us. Click on the link below in this post to access them.
On the Wednesday 23rd May at 9am, we will be holding our next coffee morning session. This session will be led by Gemma Dunn, an outreach teacher from Southwark’s Autism Support Team. Gemma will be focusing on sharing strategies to support parents to manage behaviour of children with Autism and understanding the sources of anxiety and sensory needs which may cause these behaviours.
The session will take place in our Jenny Wren learning space – follow the signs to from the school gates or ask a member of staff to direct you.
This morning, we hosted our third, monthly, coffee morning in the series of SEND sessions. Thank you to the many parents and carers who attended – we hope you found it useful.
The session looked at Speech and Language provision in the school, the assessment process and offered ideas and support for developing speech and language skills at home. Please don’t hesitate to contact Mr Cannock or another member of our SEND team at the school if you have any questions or feedback about Speech and Language or any other SEND matters.
We are currently putting together the next term’s worth of coffee mornings. If you have any area of SEND you would like us, as a school, to focus on, please get in touch.
We look forward to seeing you next time.
