Autism is a lifelong disability which affects how people communicate and interact with the world. There are around 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK – more than one in 100.
MyWorld is the National Autistic Society’s resource programme, offering support for teachers and education professionals. The MyWorld resource offers real-world knowledge based on first-hand experience.
If you have an autistic student in your class, you may not know about the many small ways in which you can help them to have a better time at school. Sometimes it is a little bit of the right kind of extra support that can make all the difference to someone on the autism spectrum who is struggling.
