The following packages provide opportunities to network and learn with colleagues in the same role in other schools. The sessions are aimed at subject leaders and other key school staff. Each session is professionally facilitated by consultants and SLEs with the group deciding topics to be discussed and shared.
This session will be an introduction to PDA and the impact that it has for the child and their learning. A theoretical and workshop session will enable attendees to develop their own practice when working with a child that has a diagnosis of PDA.
In this session we will explore how children with PDA can present in the classroom and to discuss strategies to aid anxiety. We will look at the differences and overlaps that a child with PDA has with others on the autism spectrum. How we can adapt strategies to support a child with their learning and relationships.
