When it comes to enabling our pupils to attend and engage with school, sometimes small changes can make a huge difference. With this in mind, I asked my networks on X (Twitter) and Facebook to share the small adjustments they have made for their autistic learners that have been highly impactful.
The responses were so varied and helpful – not to mention easy to pinch and apply! – that I thought they would be worth sharing with the readers of Headteacher Update.
Communication and planning
Lots of the ideas were about communication and planning. Autistic learners benefit from clear, unambiguous communication with time to process. Many will struggle with organisation, planning and following through on tasks so a little extra support here can go a long way.
