Autism, Education & Emotional Regulation

11 October 2019 @ 09:30 - 15:00
FULLY BOOKED - book now for 31st January 2020. A unique one day course for schools and educational settings. This training package draws upon the acclaimed Saturation Model.

This training package draws upon the acclaimed Saturation Model (Morewood et al, 2011) developed by the lead trainer as part of a whole-school approach to supporting autistic students in mainstream schools, fused with emotional regulation and low arousal approaches developed by Studio III (McDonnell & Deveau, 2018).





As a new training package which draws on the clinical expertise of Professor Andy McDonnell and the practical whole-school systems established and evaluated by Gareth D Morewood, 2019 will see this unique training offered for the first time to schools in the UK and abroad.

You can expect to;

  • receive a strong evidence-informed training day.
  • consider the challenges young people face in educational settings and in their community.
  • get clear strategies that are proven to have a significant impact upon learning, engagement and with the reduction of behaviours of concern.

The day will focus on;

  • individual students’ areas of need.
  • classroom pedagogy.
  • whole-school approaches as identified in the research undertaken by the lead trainer along with the development of an understanding of stress, emotional regulation and arousal.
