Secondary Special Needs - Inclusion and Autism

Description

Four boys on the autistic spectrum are observed during their school day to see how their individual needs are met by both mainstream and specialist staff.

As autism is a developmental disorder, not a learning disability, the majority of secondary age children with a diagnosis attend mainstream schools.

Difficulties relating to autism can be made worse by the busy secondary environment. Complete inclusion of pupils with ASD into school life can be difficult to achieve.

The challenges of ASD are discussed by inclusion manager Craig Smith and mainstream teachers, and learning support practitioners demonstrate how they help in class.
