Established Learning Support Officer (LSO) or similar student support role


Learning Support Officers (LSO’s) play a vital role in student learning. This workshop supports established LSO’s to continue to build their skills and understanding.

This presentation is right for you if:

  • You have been learning support staff for at least 12 months
  • You already have a great grasp on being an LSO and are ready to level up your skills
  • You would find it helpful to understand better how to support your neuro-divergent students
  • You are ready to investigate and understand more of the nitty-gritty elements of being an LSO
  • You want more individual opportunities to unpack your classroom ‘hot spots’ and leave with strategies you can immediately implement.  

Key takeaways               

  • higher level LSO learnings
  • case studies – general examples to work through
  • your own examples of ‘hot spots’ unpacked
  • a neuro-affirming lens on all out workings for the day
  • a list of action points to start on your next working day.
