Lego Therapy.... what is it and how does it work?

Lego Therapy is a social development programme for children with autism (developed by Dan LeGoff – 2004, Philadelphia, researched and recommended by Simon Baron Cohen & Gina Gomez). It is one of the very few approaches where research has proven significant improvements in Social Competence at the end of the intervention as well as at later follow up. It is a collaborative play therapy where participants take different roles to create a joint model and, although originally developed to support children and young people diagnosed with autism, it is relevant to many others requiring social skills development work.

This workshop aims to introduce delegates to the principals of Lego Therapy, explore why it particularly appeals to children and young people diagnosed with autism and discuss how it might be implemented within a setting. There will also be an opportunity to 'have a go!

Basic Autism Training - Moving on from the Triad

This course is aimed at anyone new to the field, as well as those with a basic understanding of autism who wish to deepen their knowledge in the light of current research.

The session will provide an in-depth introduction to autism, how children and young people with autism think differently (the cognitive styles) and will cover some basic strategies and ideas for supporting children with autism in education.

The course will take account of more recent research within the field to ensure delegates who already have a basic understanding, are up to date.

NTG1107 New to Governance 1/2

Tuesday, 11th July 2017 6:00 pm -8:00 pm
£130 for both sessions

New to Governance

The course is a vital part of the induction of new school governors, the course covers the essential elements of the role of the governing board and of the governors that make up the board. The course acknowledges the need for all governors to be properly inducted and developed to ensure they possess the knowledge and skills required to perform their functions confidently and effectively.

The course is designed for new governors but governors who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills are very welcome. The sessions are interactive and activities use real examples to illustrate challenges that governors face.

The sessions will explore the key roles of the governing board as outlined in the current Governance Handbook; particular emphasis is placed on the three core functions of school governance;

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

The course will examine how these core functions relate to the everyday functioning of the school and its board of governors and the responsibilities of the board to the school.

Please note this course is in two parts. (2x2 hour sessions)

Our training will be facilitated by one of our NLGs (National Leader of Governance) - Trevor Kendrick.  You can read more about Trevor here: https://www.5wellstsa.org.uk/index.php/school-to-school/national-leaders-of-governance/17-trevor-kendrick
