Advanced Trqaining Materials: Working effectively with colleagues and other agencies: E-learning materials commissioned in response to a Government recommendation, following the Lamb Inquiry (2009). They are designed to support teachers in mainstream schools who wish to gain advanced and specialist skills. This unit looks at the various people within your school and from external agencies who may come into regular contact with a pupil with autism. It considers the impact that these people may have on pupils, and identifies ways in which you can support communication and collaboration to ensure the best outcomes for pupils.
