What is the most effective way of supporting students with Asperger’s Syndrome?

When you have a student who sometimes exhibits significant difficulties in social interaction, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour, then supporting that student can be very hard indeed.

Students with Asperger’s Syndrome may also exhibit physical clumsiness and unusual uses of language too – everything in the syndrome, in fact, causes difficulty.

The cause of Asperger’s is not clear and there is no single treatment which is recognised as being suitable – and there is even disagreement in some quarters as to whether this is a difference, rather than a disability.

Which is why we have set up an on-line course (developed in association with British Institute of Learning Disabilities and Voyage Care) which explores ways of supporting students with Asperger’s.

On completion of the course you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to support people with Asperger’s and to help them when they become frustrated, angry, depressed or are suffering from low self-esteem.

We also look at some of the common difficulties that people with Asperger’s Syndrome experience, for example, in terms of communication and memory, and consider techniques for helping individuals cope with these on a day-to-day basis.

The study units include:

  • What is Asperger’s?
  • Asperger’s and social interaction
  • Characteristics of autism and providing support.

The full course costs £30 inc. VAT.

What’s the best solution to secure, affordable, on-site PE storage and how do I get it?

When they designed schools, they just didn’t put in enough cupboards but you have loads of kit and equipment you want to keep safe so what do you do?

Our solution

  • is affordable starting at only £12 per week and some PTAs pay this
  • is much more secure than a shed and is wind, weather and rodent proof
  • is already being used by hundreds of schools all over the country

You see them everywhere, but had you realised that steel storage containers make perfect storage for schools. We speak to schools on a daily basis and have helped hundreds of teachers overcome all kinds of storage issues.

Muddy PE equipment does not have to be dragged back into your building at the end of every lesson. It can be securely stored along with all the flags, mowing and line marking equipment conveniently close to the playing field.

With a high-security locking system our containers are much more secure than a shed and are virtually vandal proof.

We can even provide fixed shelving, personnel doors, windows, insulation, heating and lighting so that you get exactly the storage space you need.

Delivery can be arranged very quickly, they are ready to use as soon as they arrive and usually they don’t require planning permission.

If you only need extra storage on a short term basis, perhaps during a refurbishment or for an event, don’t worry we can sort that out for you too.

To find out more, please take a look at our website www.storage-for-schools.co.uk. Alternatively please call me, Simon, on our dedicated schools hotline 01934 781042. I’m sure you’ll have plenty of questions and I’ll be able to help with some friendly advice.

I look forward to hearing from you even, if it’s just for a chat and some advice,

Simon Bass
