Staff at North were privileged to receive training from Aaron Yorke, who has 15 years experience as a qualified specialist teacher & autism advisor for Local Authorities. He has a Ba Hons in Psychology, QTS, & PGC in Autism and is an autism speaker.
He provided the staff with a wealth of knowledge, recognising that as a society, we are far more aware of autism as a spectrum and recognise that diagnoses have increased in number due to increased reporting and rising diagnosis among adults, females and higher functioning individuals.
His training was bespoke and focused on a new way of working with and understanding the huge range of the autistic spectrum and embracing the individuality and creativity that brings. As a North family, we welcome all students to our school and strive to do our best for each individual.
