CPD Training - Supporting Autistic Learners in the Secondary Classroom

CPD Training - Supporting Autistic Learners in the Secondary Classroom

Working with secondary aged students on the autism spectrum can be incredibly rewarding for both educators and students. Not only does it provide an opportunity to improve communication, social skills and academic performance, but it also helps create an inclusive environment where everyone feels accepted and respected.


For teachers and support staff, further autism training is essential in order to effectively support these learners. With additional education comes a greater understanding of how best to meet the needs of students on the autstic spectrum. This might include techniques such as visual supports, verbal prompts or positive reinforcement strategies that help promote engagement and success in the classroom. In addition to this, extra training can equip staff with the tools they need to better recognise signs of stress or anxiety in their pupils – allowing them to intervene quickly and appropriately. It can also provide a deeper insight into the unique challenges faced by those on the autism spectrum, enabling everyone to create an environment that is more conducive to learning.
