Autism In Schools
We are excited to be part of a government-funded project that aims to improve support for autistic children and young people in mainstream secondary schools. The project seeks to improve the school environment, foster good relationships between staff, parents and students, signpost families to sources of support and provide better access to early intervention.
Using learning from the project, training for school staff will be co-produced by health professionals and parents. Although the project primarily focuses on autism, we are keen to ensure that it benefits learners with other types of needs as well. Parents of children with any type of special educational need or disability will be welcome to attend the parent groups.
