World Autism Awareness Week 27 March 2017

World Autism Awareness Week 27 March 2017

Crossley School raised awareness during WAAW week. Mr Chris Davis, (SENCO) prepared and delivered an assembly to raise awareness of autism. Students with an ASD diagnosis were consulted regarding the presentation and it highlighted famous people both past and present who have autism and linked it to videos. Calderdale NAS have lent the school the Virtual Reality headsets to assist with linking this awareness to both smaller PHSCE days and A level psychology classes. As well as making a £250 donation to Calderdale NAS, Crossley Heath also held their first parent support group (for parents/carers of children with an ASD diagnosis). The group will meet termly and hopes to invite their SEN governor to a future meeting. Awareness raised!
