Ka (pronouns they/them), is a specialist SEN teacher working for a charity called Resources for Autism. They work at a specialist pilot project in Newham for young people with a diagnosis of autism+ who have been, or are about to be, excluded from their educational placement due to behavioural issues. Ka is very interested in communication and how we communicate our needs, desires and wants to those around us, and how we can communicate more effectively to ensure that we are heard as we want to be. They are going to talk about communication, ways we communicate (verbal and nonverbal) and how communication has changed over the last year.
