Gina Davies, founder of Attention Autism and Specialist Speech and Language Therapist, has over 25 years experience in the field of autism. Her programme is hands on, practical and fun. She will show you how to build communication, interaction, attention and learning but more importantly how to make this a motivating journey for you and your child or adult with autism. The Attention Autism approach is simple - make it irresistible and the child/adult will want to learn and communicate. Our approach will teach you -
How autism affects learning - or why does my child do that?
How to create joyful and dynamic activities - or please can we have some fun together!
How to inspire shared communication - or please help me to get through to him!
How to have a good time learning - or what's in this for me?
How to improve behaviour or - let's find another way instead
Attention Autism will take you through each step and support you to keep going. We will ask you what is the problem, where you want to start and then put together a programme for you.
"Gina Davies is an exceptional practitioner. Mothers who start off highly stressed, trying to get their children to pay attention and 'sit still', find they no longer have to struggle and, possibly for the first time, they begin to enjoy and have fun with their children"
Professor Rita Jordan OBE Autism Centre for Education and Research, University of Birmingham
"Thank you very much for the training. I found it extremely useful and thought provoking. It particularly made me think about how I present activities to all the children I work with. Now before starting any activity I ask myself if I was the child how motivated would I be to do this and then make a few alterations."

"I thoroughly enjoyed your training. It is very rare that training is relevant enough to support / enhance our classroom practice. Your enthusiasm and knowledge of the 'Autistic' mind was inspirational. You were also honest about the realities of teaching such a diverse group of individuals. It helps when someone is brave enough to voice what one often thinks!"
"I thought the session last week was great ... it was interesting, informative and fresh. As an HLTA I can see my using it when covering teachers lessons and the ones I plan my self. It looks a great starter to my art and to SEAL to get them paying attention before we start. Staff have been talking about the training all week and I know they are keen to put it into practice."
