Ronnie has experience of inspection and quality improvement overseas and knowledge of curricula and systems in USA, UAE and Malaysia. Ronnie will be leading a seminar on differentation in the classroom for pupils with autism. Ronnie says: “Children on the autistic spectrum can be the easiest of all to teach – provided the teacher works with their differences and does not try to force the child into being what they are not. This session looks at the main differences posed in the classroom by children on the spectrum and how they can be fully included. Topics under discussion include social interaction and communication, group work, positive uses of obsessions, appropriate tasks and projects and good practice in the role of the learning assistant. As a parent of a child on the autistic spectrum, I wish this conference had been around when he was diagnosed. It is so important for parents to understand why their children are different and how their strengths are often overlooked and to know that they are not alone. I am privileged to be able to work with such eminent presenters and hope my contribution will go some way to making a difference for children at school.” Book a seat at the conference.
