Taking lived autistic experience as our starting point this co-created workshop will offer practical advice on providing nurturing, person-centred outdoor experiences to meet the needs of autistic learners.  Together we will explore ways Forest School pedagogy and practice can promote autism accepting learning communities, promoting positive impacts that reach beyond the woods. There will be a discussion about the Neurodiversity Paradigm and the Social Model of Disability and why it is important that these ideas are embedded in our practice.
We will reflect on how we can establish autism acceptance at all levels of the Forest School community. What does ‘quality Forest School for all’ look like from the perspective of autistic young people and neurodivergent practitioners?

This workshop is open to everyone who cares about creating a safe, kind, compassionate education system that serves autistic people well.

Please join us if you are a neurodivergent or neurotypical: practitioner, homeschooling parent, teacher, Forest School leader,  SEND leader, mental health or social care professional.
