Anna Bailey-Bearfield is Autism Policy Lead at the Department of Health and Social Care, will provide a seminar followed by a student presentation from Mélanie Greux, a PhD student in the Faculty of Education at Cambridge.

‘Communication is key to everyday life and children’s development, but is at risk of being unsupported (or even a source of discrimination) for many autistic children. Research shows that the communication abilities and preferences of autistic children are not always accounted for, which can lead to high levels of anxiety and interaction avoidance. When children experience more language difficulties, they would greatly benefit from evidence-based communication interventions implemented by Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs). Yet, evidence shows that many families do not have access to these valuable services across the country. The situation is even more dire for autistic children growing up in multilingual and multicultural environments, where misconceptions around best language practices and ill-equipped services may further contribute to communication inequalities.'

Capturing your audience’s attention and keeping it is vital for any type of public engagement. Having a good story to tell and then telling it in a compelling way enables you to connect complex subjects with a wide audience. This module takes you through the art and science of storytelling: exploring attention and motivation, dramatic structure, rhetorical devices, visual enhancements, and peripheral influences so that you can craft your own engaging story.

This programme will run over a week comprising: Two 1hr-1.5hr theory workshops One 1-hour showcase at the end of the week to share your work and receive valuable feedback from the rest of the group.

You are required to attend all three sessions** Optional 1-1 mentoring sessions

Training will be provided by Dr Lucinda Spokes, Head of Public Engagement and Sarah Cruise, Eloquential

By the end of this week participants will:

• Understand how to capture and maintain attention • Identify ways in which they can motivate an audience to engage with their own research • Use dramatic tools to structure and enhance their story • Explore ways of increasing memorability through visuals, imagination, and rhetorical devices • Appreciate the importance of peripheral influences (style of writing, sound of voice, visual appearance etc) and how to ensure that they are most supportive of your story • Have created a story about their research to engage with a public audience
