Name: Ginny Mason
Over time at oak Lodge I have taught young people with autism across the broad spectrum. I trained as a practitioner using the TEACCCH approach as an educational intervention appropriate for autism. I have extensive knowledge of an eclectic range of interventions and approaches used in the education of individuals with autism and associated pervasive developmental disorders. More recently I have been trained to use the SCERTS Model as an educational assessment program for individuals with autism.
My role as lead for autism has enabled me to develop my skills in coaching and mentoring colleagues across the school and in the wider community through Outreach services for autism. I am Outreach co-ordinator at Oak Lodge and have 3 years of experience providing school to school support and training in effective autism practice.
