“I attended the training ‘An Introduction to Autistic Spectrum Condition including Asperger’s Syndrome’ on 23.03.11 and just wanted to leave some feedback.

I found the course really interesting, the content was very thought provoking and engaging. Sally Slater made the material discussed very accessible to all and made me look at ASD from another perspective. Sally is a great speaker and I feel is a credit to your team!”

Thank you

Kerry Hoye Speech and Language Therapy Assistant, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust

I just wanted to express my great thanks to Sally Slater for the course she ran on Wed 23rd March, ‘An introduction to the autistic spectrum condition’, which I attended.

It was a breath of fresh air compared to many county led courses I have been on recently. Informative, humorous with first hand experiences and ideas which can be realistic in a class of Reception aged children.

Thank you for such a positive day – there were many ideas that are so relevant to good practise for any classroom that have slipped into the ether of my memory. Hopefully they will reappear in the near future to the benefit of staff and children alike in my setting

Again, many thanks

Jenny Loney, Cambridgeshire
