Autism Awareness
This resource contains a fully editable PowerPoint presentation on autism and Autism Awareness Day (2nd April) and Autism Awareness Week. I had the privilege of teaching and working with many amazing young people on the autistic spectrum for twenty years. People with autism are often misunderstood. Hopefully, this presentation will help others to be more informed about, and more understanding of, autism.

The presentation includes sections on:

- What is autism
- Social Communication Difficulties
- Social Interaction Difficulties
- Rigid Thought Processes
- Sensory Issues
- Repetitions and Rituals
- Gifts and Talents
- Famous people with Autism / Asperger's

The PowerPoint contains hyperlinks to:

1. A video which shows what it is like to experience sensory overload.
2. A short video on autism.
3. A short video about Schools’ Awareness Week by the National Autistic Society.
4. A video produced by a young person with autism who talks about five things he thinks it is important that people know about autism and five ways you can help him.

A simple text version of this presentation, more appropriate for younger pupils / older SEN students, is also available.
