Centre of Expertise
As a centre of Expertise in Autism, we offer advice, support and resources to other Peterborough schools and wider professionals. (Please also see our resource bank)
Schools are invited to contact the Hub manager to arrange a visit to the hub. This is a chance for schools to see different ways of teaching children with ASD, the resources we use in the hub, and the adaptations made to the learning environment. It is also an opportunity to talk over any difficulties faced, so that we can problem solve together.
As a centre of Expertise, the hub staff also put on termly training sessions. These are aimed at school staff, parents and other professionals, depending on the topic.
In recent years the hub has run training sessions on the use of workstations, engagement and motivation and learning virtually. We have also co-produced a training session, about developing attention skills, with the Speech and Language service. The Autism Specialist teacher service also contribute to these training sessions.
Our training events are always well attended and attendees agree that they found the sessions useful and had grown in understanding as a result of the training.
