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

There are around 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK. That’s more than 1 in 100 people. In your school, it is likely that you will already have one or more autistic children. You may teach or support a child or young person who you feel may be on the autism spectrum. The diagnosis process may have just started or the diagnosis may not yet be confirmed, but you want to increase your understanding of autism and appropriate interventions to use with that child or young person.

This pack can be of help to any member of staff working in an education setting. We include information about autism, how it may affect children and young people in education settings, information on strategies, interventions and useful resources from the NAS and other organisations. We hope our pack will give you greater confidence in working with pupils who are on the autism spectrum.
