    New Resource by Childnet - "STAR SEN Toolkit for autism spectrum disorders"

    Hi all,

    Please feel free to share!

    The Childnet STAR Toolkit is a new online safety resource that offers practical advice and teaching activities to help secondary schools explore internet safety with young people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Developed in partnership with Leicester City Councilís Building Schools for the Future Programme, Childnetís STAR Toolkit aims to increase the online safety knowledge of educators and empower them to support their learners to use the internet safely and positively.

    The aim of the Childnet STAR Toolkit is to assist teachers in educating their pupils with ASD about the internet and safeguarding them against online risks.The four sections SAFE, TRUST, ACTION and RESPECT all feature the concept of friendship and emphasise the importance of finding the balance between online and offline interaction. At the same time, the resource is continually promoting a positive, fun and safe experience for young people with ASD.

    The Toolkit has been developed with input and support from three schools in Leicester. Childnet want advice and help from educators to further develop this toolkit to better provide for young people with ASD so Childnet have created a forum for staff to share their experiences using the toolkit and any adapted resources or ideas that they have used.

    Childnet would welcome any support in helping to spread the word. On the "About the Toolkit page" you can find a blog post and images, a press release and a two-page flyer. There is also a suggested tweet to help in creating a buzz on Twitter!
