Toolbox to help with autism

11th April 2008 at 01:00

A resource providing information for schools on dealing with autistic pupils is to be published this summer.

The Autism Toolbox has been commissioned by the Scottish Government and put together by a team of writers from the University of Strathclyde's National Centre for Autism Studies.

The materials will include guidance for schools on, for instance:

- recognising autism

- strengths and challenges of an autism profile

- assessment

- classroom organisation and strategies.

The Autism Toolbox will be published in June when photocopiable sets of guidance will be downloadable from the Scottish Autism Network site.
