- Training: Autism Champions can carry out a range of training programmes for teachers, TAs, keyworkers, parents and guardians to enable them to meet the specific needs of children. Examples of training courses we have delivered in the past include Autism in the Mainstream classroom, Emotional regulations and your child, Introduction to SCERTS, Social stories, Autism and Inclusion and Introduction to Autism.
We find that schools often pay for our intervention by using Pupil Premium funding. There are other times when the school and the parents share the cost.
