What people are saying about this training?

“I needed a training package on social stories that explained in ‘simple terms’ how to write social stories for my staff to write and develop their own. I have had ‘social stories’ training before and felt disappointed so this training, delivered by Emma Griffiths was just what we needed! We had the opportunity as staff teams to write our own ‘social stories’ and had the guidance from our trainer! It was to the point and highly informative. As a busy primary school we need training to be engaging but also delivered by people that have ‘real life knowledge of autism and social stories."

Headteacher of Primary School, St. Helens
