Autism champions post-16 network 02.12.20

Help to foster a positive culture towards Autism in your setting and help your children and young adults with Autism to thrive emotionally and academically among their peers by becoming an Autism Champion.

This year the ASD Support Service is relaunching our Autism Champions Networks to include Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Post 16 settings. We are aiming for all schools and education settings in B&NES to have an identified ‘Autism Champion’, who can support pupils with autism and their families.

Autism champions can be any professional from the settings above who would like to become an advocate for their children and young adults with autism. Autism champions will have an existing awareness of ASD, compassion for the children and young people they work with and a desire to further their professional development and nurture the understanding of others.

The network meets three times a year and each time there will be:

An opportunity to network with other Autism Champions

  • A training focus
  • Sharing good practice
  • News and updates
  • Sharing of resources
  • Focussed discussions

We request that a booking is made for each session please.

An introduction to dyslexia 03.02.21


This course is intended for those new to working with children with dyslexia



This presentation begins with an exploration of the term dyslexia.

Several definitions will be examined as well as a consideration of a variety of strengths as well as weaknesses associated with the condition.

There will also be an examination of a wide range of early indicators of dyslexia, pertinent to the classroom, including the signs of dyslexia associated with motor development, reading writing, mathematics and memory.



Following this, the training will focus on how teaching staff can most effectively meet the needs of pupils with dyslexia, exploring the “dyslexia-friendly” classroom, communication and importance of supporting the pupil’s memory.


This course scored 9.2 out of 10 last year
