A one day course for teachers and freelance practitioners.
This course will demonstrate to you ways that enable your children to relax. The Bamboozle Approach, which is a tried and tested methodology, recognised by the National Autistic Society and Ofsted, will give you strategies to implement in your lessons or workshops immediately.
We will share with you Bamboozle’s 28 years of experience in delivering long-term culture-change projects in the autism learning environment as well as our more recent outdoor work with families.
“ The project that you have designed for our children and staff has inspired and motivated us to change our curriculum to meet the needs of our pupils in a much more creative and dynamic way. This has led to happier pupils and much less challenging behaviour.” Lynnette Johnson, Headteacher, Lakesides School, Welwyn Garden City.
“I am so grateful to you all. It has been amazing to see how quickly Lizzie has relaxed and how much she has talked! Lizzie often doesn’t talk with new people and in new situations, yet here she has chatted happily. Lizzie was allowed to open up in her own time and was enraptured with the activities. This feels a very happy, magical safe place.” – Lydia, parent on Bamboozle’s Wildings Outdoor Project
Our work is often described as ‘magic’. But it isn’t. It is the rigorous application of our beliefs, principles and strategies. These can be taught. We share our Approach with parents, carers, teachers and theatre practitioners in the UK and across the world – from Stevenage to Shanghai and many places in between! Sharing our Approach with educators and practitioners enables more and more learning disabled children to experience the highest quality theatre and creative education practice as well as explore their capacity to interact meaningfully with the world around them.
This autism-specific course covers key areas of the Bamboozle Approach which can be applied and integrated into your own practice straight away.
