Resource supporting teachers, initial teacher trainees, headteachers and leadership teams working with pupils on the autism spectrum.
The aims of this programme on the autism spectrum are to improve outcomes for pupils on the autism spectrum and increase knowledge and understanding among professionals about the autism spectrum. It also aims to share good practice so that professionals in mainstream schools can make adjustments to their policies, practices, procedures and curriculum that will enable more young people on the autism spectrum to benefit from a mainstream education.
This resource on the autism spectrum may be used in a variety of ways and by a range of users. Ideally, the units should be introduced in sequence because later units build on the activities and video clips in earlier units and assume an understanding of language and information.
