Our publication Autism spectrum disorders: a resource pack for staff will be useful for any member of staff working in an education setting.

We include information about autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and how they may affect young people in primary and secondary schools, although the principles of the guidance here can also be applied in pre-school and in further education.

We also include strategies to include children and teenagers in the classroom and in the wider school environment, as well as some resources to help young people towards an understanding of the condition. You may well find that the strategies included here for working with pupils who have an ASD prove very useful with other children, too.

Using the materials and applying the principles highlighted in the pack will help you meet some of the requirements of your school's disability equality scheme.
