Job overview

You will need to be confident in planning and delivering daily Maths and literacy lessons with a small cohort of children working at a primary level.

These include problems with rigid thinking, managing uncertainty and change, social interaction and understanding and managing emotions. 

The school believes social and emotional development of children with autism is just as important as academic achievement. The school believes academic achievement without appropriate social and emotional development leaves autistic children with a poor quality of life, as well as poor life chances.
