Creative Ways to Engage Children on the Autism Spectrum

During this one-day course you will consider:

  • How the Bamboozle Approach is used to engage students on the Autism Spectrum.
  • Five considerations to be made before we start working with students
  • Nine strategies that can be used to engage hard to reach students
  • Video clips of Bamboozle working with young people on the Autism Spectrum
  • How we can listen effectively for information
  • Practical, tried and tested workshop ideas for the whole spectrum of Autistic young people
  • How to use purposeful observation, non-directive offers and many other strategies
  • Creating a growth mindset in ourselves and our students

What teachers say about the Bamboozle approach:

“We have been deeply impressed with the sheer talent and professionalism of the Bamboozle Team. Their respect for the dignity and individuality of our students is manifest in their sensitive and appropriate communication approaches. Bamboozle has sought to marry the aesthetic but practical approach to the challenge we have set them; to help us discover some radically new entry points for learning for our ‘hardest to reach’ students with ASD.” John Naylor, Yeoman Park School.

“I have been personally moved to see our young people achieve a level of engagement and enjoyment that is not frequently witnessed in school. The Bamboozle artists showed all pupils (and staff) an inspiring level of respect. The opportunity to observe and reflect on such skilful practice has re charged my personal enthusiasm.” Christina House – Head of School, Redgate School.
