"“I have a lot more understanding on how to set up programmes in my classroom and a greater understanding of my ASD students”.
“I’m much more conscious of the needs of my autistic student. I am able to communicate better with him and I have some very practical and useful strategies to use with him, They work!”
“I have a much better understanding of where my
student is coming from so I am able to focus on his needs so he has more success.”
“He is much more settled in many situations. Other children are working with him more easily”
"Miss Hampton has proved herself as a capable teacher who has been able to develop a wide range of teaching strategies to effectively meet the complex educational needs of her pupils. Sarah is trustworthy, honest and reliable and has an imaginative approach to her teaching.
Miss Hampton has taken responsibility for her own professional development and attended training courses when appropriate, including specialist courses in the teaching of ASD pupils and in learning sign language to communicate with pre-verbal pupils."
“Sarah's most obvious attributes are her enthusiasm and positive attitude. These enable her to strike up positive and effective relationships with children and colleagues within a short space of time. She shows the ability and inclination to see situations from the children's point of view and a unique sensitivity to their needs, particularly those with the greatest need. I believe she is driven to make a difference in this area.
It is very difficult for this approach not to rub off on her colleagues.
Sarah is flexible, entirely reliable and very hard working."
