This week has been Autism Awareness Week and our young people have been learning about the behaviours and characteristics of autism and what they can do to help their peers.
E-Base students from our Autism Base have been taking part in a range of activities to help both staff and young people throughout the Learning Centre have a greater understanding of what goes on in their classroom and about young people on the autistic spectrum. They have put up a wonderful range of posters (to the delight of Dave, our caretaker!) to raise awareness and they have thoroughly enjoyed displaying their work around the building..
On Thursday they embraced the theme of Autism Awareness Week, ‘standing out and being different’, through their own unique gingerbread creations..
They shared a presentation in Friday’s assembly showing a series of photographs of their English lesson with some wonderful student comments – we will have to add it to this page next week for you to see for yourselves.
Autism Awareness Week has been brilliant – we think every week should be like this!! 🙂
