What people say about SEND Training:
"Really enjoyed both sessions - the jokes, mini-clips and past stories make information easier to understand and relate to. It's great for serious info to be shared informally." Teacher in mainstream Junior School re ASD training.
"Great ideas for resources." Teacher in mainstream Junior School re ASD training.
"I really enjoyed the course...I stayed focused and I'm looking forward to the next lesson. It's nice to see people who show a passion for their work and children, thank you both." TA in a large Inner City School re 4 day course
"I have really enjoyed today's learning and stayed focused the whole day (which is a miracle). Thank you for the practical activities and sharing experiences." TA re 4 day course
"A very good day - everything was clearly explained and now I will understand why some children do the things they do!!" TA
"I did not know about proprioception, vestibular and interoception, but I do now and I actually understand them." TA re Sensory training
"Very well delivered, enjoyed the practical activities. Have more knowledge on PDA. Understood the sensory differences much better, useful resources to take back..great ideas shared as a group."
"I really enjoyed today's training again, I found that when I got back to the school the next day I felt a bit more confident and calm, I look at the children different knowing what I learnt would be of use to these children. Thank you very much for your help, looking forward to the next training, oh and thanks for explaining about PDA - I thought I knew but I did not!"
