Welcome to the December 2011 edition of the AET Newsletter


Our work here at the AET is now focused on setting up and delivering new national autism training to schools across England and things have been developing quickly as to how that will happen. We have now appointed the seven training hubs that will facilitate the roll out of the training. Schools will be able to register with those hubs to take part in the training soon, so keep checking the website for details of your local hub! See the full story here.

We are also about to launch an exciting new teaching resource featuring superhero comic book characters devised by our Youth Council and brought to life by the illustrators behind the Doctor Who magazine. The pack is now available to pre-order – see here for more information.  

I hope that you enjoy reading our December e-newsletter and I’d like to thank you for your continued support.

With best wishes,

Steve Huggett
AET Director
