Free time such as lunchtime and break time may be difficult for pupils with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In our short guide, which you can download below,  we explain why and suggest some ways in which school staff and other pupils can help. Parents and carers may also find this information useful.

The guide includes information about lunchtime clubs, buddy systems, social skills classes, bullying, and creating a safe place for pupils with an ASD to go to if they feel especially anxious or need some time out.

We hope that some of the suggestions and ideas will help you to support pupils with an ASD in your school.
