Steph Reed, BA (Hons), PGCE
For the past 10 years, I have been teaching in various mainstream and autism specialist schools. I have taught many incredible children and young people with very different abilities and complex needs, who have inspired me to ensure different learning needs are embraced and children succeed.
As well as creating and delivering tailored autism related training to educational professionals and services, I provide a model of outreach support through coaching and specialist advice to schools, services and families.
I undertook action research when developing the outreach model and the findings indicate that developing the knowledge and understanding of staff with regular focused observations, goal setting and monitoring, empowered teachers and teaching assistants to immediately implement successful and sustainable practice, resulting in good outcomes for children.
I have training and experience in implementing research-based approaches such as SCERTS, Social Stories, TEACCH, Makaton, Attention Autism, BILD Positive Behaviour Support, PECS, Intensive Interaction and more.
I provide tailored outreach, consultancy, training, and coaching services, whilst continuing to expand this website with informative articles and resources. I am very passionate about sharing successful practice and learning together.
