Moving forward apace

There have been exciting developments for both the Greek and Italian teams over recent weeks. The Greek team, led by Katerina Laskaridou, has been in talks with the new director of Special Educational Needs (SEN) at the Ministry of Education in Greece, with a view to potentially rolling out the autism staff training programme across the whole of the country. This is very early days, of course, but extremely encouraging for the Piraeus-based team as well as the broader TAE project members.

The Italian team, meanwhile, are moving on swiftly with the piloting of Level 2 of the training materials with teachers from a number of local primary schools. They are also finalising plans for the next transnational meeting in Italy which is only a few weeks away. As well as discussions, presentations and the all-important ‘multiplier’ event (which involves many international participants), plans include visits to local schools and meetings with the whole team and sub-teams. We are all looking forward to it!
