Welcome to the March 2011 edition of the Autism Education Trust Newsletter
As you may know, communication of much of our activity has been under
review for the past few months under the widespread communications
freeze on all government funded organisations following the Comprehensive Spending Review. However, I’m excited to let you know that we are now ‘thawing out’ and are able to continue with many of the AET’s invaluable projects, and of course tell you all about them as they develop.
You only have a few days left to book a place at our London Training
Event (9th March), so if you haven’t already, please do book now to avoid
disappointment. The York event on 10th February was a huge success and we hope that both London and Manchester (24th March) events will be equally as valuable for those attending.
Also coming up this month, a host of fantastic new case studies on the good practice section of the AET website to inspire and inform. And on the subject of good practice, we’d love to hear about any Autism Stars that you work with or have come across in your community - find out more
Thank you for your continued support. I hope that you enjoy our March
e-newsletter - we really value your feedback, so please feel free to contact us with your thoughts and suggestions.

AET Training Events 2011 off to a flying start in York
Almost 100 delegates joined us on 10th February for the inaugural training event of the 2011 season. The day was a great success with professionals and parents alike leaving feeling uplifted, encouraged and inspired. We look forward to delivering a similar programme – based on ‘whole-school’ strategies for children and young people on the autism spectrum – at the London and Manchester events in March.
