Our Summer meeting was well attended and was an inspirational talk on Autism and inclusion given by Gareth D. Morewood, Director of Curriculum Support (SENCo) & Specialist Leader of Education at Priestnall School. Gareth talked about the importance of developing personalised pathways for pupils in schools, the importance of clear communication and of the SENCo’s role within the school as an advocacy of change.

 

In April we had an very interesting and practical talk on Executive Function and how to use the executive function model to understand and support a range of specific learning differences from Dr Karisa Krcmar of Loughborough University. Karisa demonstrated her Star profile and showed how this could be used as a practical tool with students with a SpLD using examples of individual students provided by the audience.
