08/09/2020   WTT September 2020

Dear colleagues, 

Please click here to access WTT’s risk assessment for potential essential setting visits, which we will review in collaboration with your individual school risk assessments around having visitors in setting.  Please discuss support needs with us so that we can identify the safest and most efficient way forward for you. Where a visit is non-essential we can support via phone, email or virtual meeting.

 

As before, we will continue to accept referrals that have been previously discussed and agreed with us. The submission dates for this academic year are on our website here http://website.twtt.org.uk/diary.asp#177.

 

Our training programmes, the Autism Education Trust modules and our themed workshops will still be accessible via virtual delivery on Microsoft Teams throughout the year for both staff and families. Please keep an eye on our website for forthcoming dates or ask your WTT teacher for further information.

 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

13/07/2020   AET launches Back to school Resource videos

The Autism Education Trust has developed 6 short videos on supporting autistic pupils with transition back into school. They can be found here https://www.autismeducationtrust.org.uk/back-to-school/ alongside downloads and handouts for each of the presentations.

They give suggestions for reasonable adjustments, risk assessments, actions to help pupils prepare for return as well as practical strategies for a successful transition and things to be mindful of once they are in setting.

These ideas could be applied to all children. We hope you find them useful.
