Autism Support and Intensive Interaction at Manor Mead and Walton Leigh Schools
Hi all. My name is Pam Smith and I’m the Autism Support Teacher and Intensive Interaction Co-ordinator for The Federation of Manor Mead and Walton Leigh Schools. I have taught children with Autism and complex needs, learning difficulties and PMLD from Early Years to Post 16 for nearly 30 years. I also work privately providing training and consultancy in Autism and Intensive Interaction for organisations such as White Lodge, Green Corridor and with mainstream students and their families. My 26-year-old son is autistic, giving me a dual perspective of autism as a parent and teacher.
My role is to offer support, training and strategies for autism and intensive interaction to our students, staff, parents and families from both schools. I can’t promise to have the answer to every question or solve every problem but will do my best to work alongside you and give as much support as I can.
My work hours are: Mondays and Wednesdays 8.00 – 4.00 at Manor Mead; Tuesdays 8.00 – 4.00 at Walton Leigh. Please leave any messages for me at the School Offices at Manor Mead (01932 241834) or Walton Leigh (01932 223243) or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org .
