Autism Education Trust - Programme Evaluation 2013-15
Dr Stephen Cullen, Mairi Ann Cullen and Professor Geoff Lindsay
Phase 2 of our evaluation of the Autism Education Trust (AET) 2013-15 built on our earlier research Autism Education Trust: Programme Evauation, 2011-13. That study provided evidence that the AET's development programme has been highly successful. As a result the Department for Education is funding an extension. During this phase the AET aimed to:-
- Maintain self-funded delivery of training in schools from the original 7 hubs.
- Develop materials to train an additional 5660 delegates in early years, schools and post-16 at 3 tiers.
- Develop specific standards for use by parents and local authorities.
- Extend independent evaluation of the whole programme.
Our Interim Report provides evidence on the first period of Phase 2 and indicates that this is continuing to develop its work successfully.
