Autism Awareness Day

Today is Autism Awareness Day...2nd April 2020!

Had we been in school today, we would have been celebrating by wearing blue to raise awareness (and money for local ASC charities) about Autism. We'd have also been giving our pupils at Dovedale the opportunity to produce leaflets/posters about their own experiences of Autism to share with other teaching centres and local schools as training material for their staff and parents.

 

Here are some links to useful websites for parents/pupils. Attached below are a couple of posters which include information on helpful strategies we use when we are teaching or working with our pupils with ASC.

 

These may be useful for parents who are home-schooling at the moment. There are also another couple of posters which share some key facts about ASC.
