Autism first

January 13, 2017 by admin in

In response to the growing need for Autism services in mainstream schools in London, Words First Ltd is proud to offer schools access to our Autism Outreach and Consultancy Service as from September 2015. We offer schools flexible packages from one-off audits to blocks of weekly support to boost the capacity of the school to manage the needs of children on the Autism Spectrum.

Please contact Amanda Davis (Director) for more details about how we can tailor our approach to your needs. However, below you will find a brief overview of some of the models that we can offer schools:

  • Assessments and observations of individual children in mainstream primary and secondary schools
  • Feedback and support regarding classroom / environmental adaptations that will enhance the child’s ability to participate and reach targets
  • Audit of communication strategies used at Universal Level to improve access for children on the Autism Spectrum
  • Training and on-going support to encourage use of Universal Strategies
  • Training and on-going support to set up and monitor effective TA-led intervention sessions, where appropriate
  • Parent workshops

Once a school joins our Autism Service, you will have on-going email access to support from our team. Therefore, you will never feel ill-equipped to manage the needs of your students with ASD and you will be able to buy-in additional hours to top up the needs of the school.
