This week the Kedleston Group were exhibiting at the Autism Central 2018 show in Birmingham.
As part of this, we ran a workshop talking about our approaches to supporting young people with autism, and the outcomes we see. Our Phil Petch, Head Teacher at Arc Oakbridge School and Melanie Whitfield, Head Teacher at Brookways School London were the leads for the workshop on the day.
They were joined by a young person from our Arc School Old Arley, Jenna, who we have featured on the website before following her brilliant training 'Welcome to my World' that was delivered to all staff at the school.
They were a fantastic trio and delivered a heart-warming and informative session to the group of parents and professionals who attended.
Jenna did a particularly amazing job! In spite of the IT not working on the day (so she couldn’t show her slides) she spoke eloquently and openly about what it’s like for her being autistic and then she described how her school cares for her, supports her and really listens to her.
