Autism NI wins 3 year campaign for mandatory autism training for teachers. Great news and we congratulate Autism NI on their hard work. Now we need mandatory training on dyslexia! 1 in 10 pupils has dyslexia! Many are not being diagnosed or supported because of the lack of resources in SEN.
WE’VE DONE IT!
After a 3 year campaign, it has been agreed that mandatory autism training for all teaching staff in NI will be introduced. @AutismNICEO pictured with the Minister for Education, @peterweirmla and @PamCameronMLA, after today’s momentous debate! #trainourteachers pic.twitter.com/qJk70O0qgr
