An increasing number of children are struggling with school. Their families report high levels of anxiety and distress, and some children are refusing to go at all. The Government talks about attendance crackdowns, and schools and parents are under pressure to get those young people back into school.
In this talk, Dr Naomi Fisher will draw on her clinical experience as well as the research about why school is hard for many autistic children. She’ll talk about common strategies which are used by schools and why these can make the situation worse. She’ll suggest some ways in which we could make school a better fit for a diverse range of children.
