London, UK – This past weekend The Guardian wrote a piece about a London school for children with autism ‘revolutionising’ lunchtimes. Queensmill school that is located near Shepherd’s Bush in West London has 140 pupils, ranging from the age of 2 to 19. Many of the children are preverbal and use a PECS based system to communicate. Head Chef at the school, Djalma Lucio Polli de Carvalho, known as Lucio,is a Brazilian who worked previously as a journalist. The article highlighted the issues of the sensory nature of food and that for many children on the autism spectrum, food and eating can be a challenging aspect of their day. Headteacher Jude Ragan told The Guardian that children on the spectrum can have a ” very difficult relationship with food”, and further added:. The importance of routine and the need for some children to use the same cutlery or plates, is also touched upon with the fact that these patterns need to be gently broken. Lucio describes his job as a balancing act, as he has to extend the range of food that the children are exposed to as well as them being able to eat what is provided. He makes a note of what foods go down well and then adapts it slightly so that the children are introduced to subtle changes. On average each meal costs £1. 20. For those children who may not be too sure of a new food, they are give a small portion to try and can then go back for more. Sometimes ingredients are placed separately on the plate and sometimes a child may reject everything that they are offered. If that happens, Lucio always has a sandwich or a bowl of pasta ready for them. Children are encouraged to try new food and use pictures to ask for what they want to eat. The way in which Lucio helps the children with their dietary sensitivities is clearly explained in the story of Finn, a 15-year-old student at the school, who only ate burnt toast or food that was black. Over a period of time, Lucio made toast that was less and less burnt, and now Finn can eat toast that is only slightly brown. The Guardian asked Jude Ragan what impact Lucio has had on school mealtimes. “Tables used to be thrown over, that sort of thing. That’s stopped. Because the kids are eating, obviously they aren’t hungry which means the afternoons are better. The teachers feel properly cared for, which they deserve to be. But mostly we can just take pleasure in food. It’s a part of. Source: www.autismdailynewscast.com
Unemployed families will not be able to afford to live in large parts of England as the government’s benefit cap plans threaten at least 100,000 households with homelessness and poverty, research finds. The cap, introduced by the coalition in April 2013, limits the total benefits families can receive to £26,000 and has so far hit relatively few households. mostly those in high-rent areas of London. But plans to reduce the cap to £20,000 (£385 a week), or £23,000 (£442) in London, would mean that large parts of the south-east and south-west, and some northern cities, would be unaffordable for many more families when it is introduced next... About 22,000 households are affected by the benefit cap. The Shelter research shows that:. Families with two young or same-gender children in a two-bedroom flat are currently affected by the cap only in parts of London. But under the lower cap, the entire capital would be off limits as well as more than half the housing areas of England, including Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham. The cap would affect families with two older children who need separate bedrooms (a three-bedroom home) in more than three-quarters of England’s housing areas, including those that had never previously been considered expensive, such as Coventry,... Lone parents with two children who need a three-bedroom home would be affected in 39% of housing areas, compared with just 8% of areas under the £26,000 cap. These include areas such as Southend and Luton. Capped households will face a shortfall of £50 a week in more than one in six of England’s 152 housing districts – known as Broad Rental Market Areas – and by more than £100 in one in 12 areas. The analysis suggests that already capped families from high-rent areas, such as London, who have been rehoused outside the capital to previously cheaper places, such as Milton Keynes and Luton, may find themselves facing eviction again under the... Roger Harding, Shelter’s director of communications, policy and campaigns, said: “The benefit cap isn’t just impacting on very expensive postcodes anymore, we’re talking about places like Portsmouth and Basingstoke being off-limits to small,...

Thanks to a three-way partnership between the Olean BOCES Career and Technical Education (CTE) Center, St. Bonaventure University and the local Dream It. Do It. chapter (DIDI-WNY), teachers, administrators and guidance counselors toured... “We had a terrific group of teachers. It was a really diverse group,” said DIDI-WNY project coordinator Evelyn Sabina. “There were Spanish teachers, history teachers, math teachers, science and so on. That’s what I love about it. All of these teachers know the students the best. They are the ones that would be able to think it would be a perfect opportunity for Lisa or John in their history class. BOCES CTE offered a Summer Tech Expo on Monday and Tuesday, hosting numerous teacher workshops from computer coding to 21st-century multimedia book reports. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Dream It. Do It. organized the third annual Summer Teacher S. T. E. M. Experience, including a mission at the Dresser-Rand Challenger Learning Center in Allegany, hands-on manufacturing activities at BOCES and... Bonaventure University on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday held its K-12 Science Teacher Workshop. The program’s goal was to help teachers develop compelling new science labs and other curricula while forging boosted partnerships between SBU and area schools. The three sessions stressing science, technology, engineering and math were available for educators to mix and match for the first time. “There were teachers who went to our tours and then went on to the Bonaventure one, and there were some who went from the BOCES program and then came to ours,” Sabina said. “It was a great way to let everyone have a little variety, a taste of everything, all within a week. Sitting in a simulated mission at the Challenger Learning Center, Fillmore High School science teacher Rachel Coon said she was aiming to find paths to alternative S. T. E. M. careers. “I took chemistry in college. I’m a chemistry teacher. What else can you do with chemistry. ” Coon said Wednesday. “That was nice to see at SolEpoxy, which was the big chemistry (tour on Tuesday). Across the hall in the center’s simulated space station, Hinsdale fifth- and sixth-grade math teacher Holly Edwards was looking for new ways to engage her young. Source: www.oleantimesherald.com
As much as I love my children, I don't always want to stay home, or go to a child-friendly establishment for that matter. At some point, you get tired of sippy cups and plastic cutlery. In the same breath, my husband and I have a “not us” policy. In

“Our plan is to visit some area colleges this year with some of the kids, even if they're in fifth and sixth grade, and just let them know that college is a possibility and there are really great jobs right here at home.” Edwards said she now can
There can also be the imperative of a predictable routine, from the use of exactly the same plate and cutlery, to the need to be offered precisely the same brands of food. Breaking these patterns is not simply a matter of will or parental authority
