Triple A - Autism Training Tool
Triple-A In the Classroom
An online learning resource for
teachers, teaching assistants, SENCOs,
and school leaders for supporting autistic and neurodivergent pupils
Supported jointly by Research England Strategic Priority Funding and the ESRC-IAA fund, the collaborative team from the Centre for Neurodiversity & Development and Durham County Council, have been working with autistic people, parents, teachers and educational psychologists to co-design the new training tool.
The training tool has two functions: first to raise awareness and understanding of Triple-A issues using research evidence; and secondly, to provide practical guidance and strategies to enable teachers to support pupils who experience these issues. For example, through the training, participants will be able to download their own ‘Triple-A Toolbox’ with a range of strategies to support attention, arousal and anxiety in the classroom. It takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete, and everyone who completes the training will be provided with a certificate.
Although the training has been targeted at education professionals, we believe it will be relevant more broadly, to autistic people, parents, families and any professional involved in supporting autistic and neurodivergent people.
The hope is that the Triple-A training tool will encourage a step-change in understanding and supporting the needs of autistic and neurodivergent pupils at school to help them reach their potential.
