See flyer for details

Research evidence suggests that pupils with autism experience significant

 

issues in the development of a positive sense of self. Problems with

 

identifying who you are and finding your place in the world can lead to

 

feelings of anxiety, depression, anger and despair. All of these are

 

barriers to learning and achievement. This event will explore how and

 

why these problems might arise and together we will suggest ways of

 

working that might enable the development of a more positive sense of

 

self. Thrive is growing in popularity as an approach to enable children’s

 

social and emotional well-being. Together we will evaluate its potential

 

to support pupils with autism
