I hope you are all well and enjoying the summer. I created the course ‘Supporting the Move from Mainstream to ASD’ over the summer because I felt it was one of those areas a lot of teachers need support with. I have had teachers who have been teaching over twenty years purchase this course, which shows that no matter how long you are teaching, the transition from one setting to another is a learning curve. I found that to be the case myself last year. You do learn and adapt quickly and like me, you will love it but this course may just make the first few months that bit easier.

Teachers regularly ask me about planning. This is included in the course but I know it is useful to have actual samples too, so I have added all my long term plans for the whole year to this course at no extra charge. I will ask you to remember that all classes vary greatly and what suits one may not be right for another. These are plans for junior – first class and are based on the primary school curriculum and tjhe mild- moderate curriculum guides. I do hope that they may help in some way! The English plan is based on the NLC and is 18 pages in length. The rest of the plans vary and are between 7 and 15 pages in length.

This mini course consists of a 52 slide presentation with voice over.

It was created to support mainstream class teachers moving to teach in an ASD class for the first time.

It covers all the essentials you will need to get you set up for September
