There are a range of school training services available:
This service provides training for schools co-designed and delivered by National Autistic Society and Learning Space to support schools in their understanding of autism, and offers practical classroom strategies to help support children and young people in their care.
This service raises awareness of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as a neurobiological condition to adult school communities across Surrey. The service raises awareness of the key characteristics of the condition and provides strategies to enable children and young people to enjoy attending school, remain in school and achieve to the best of their ability.
Sessions are delivered via zoom or in person to meet the needs of the school. The team will deliver to a maximum of 30 school staff per session. This training is for teachers, SENCOs, classroom assistants, lunchtime supervisors, members of the school leadership team, office staff and caretakers to inform a ‘whole school approach’.
Schools are able to contact the team directly to book a whole/half day inset or a twilight session.
It is run and facilitated by two workers from Barnardo’s working on behalf of Mindworks Surrey and offers help with supporting and improving the outcomes for both children and staff and celebrating the different ways these children learn.
Generation Girls (GG for short) is about educating and empowerment for autistic girls and girls with learning disabilities regarding consent, sexual health and mental wellbeing.
