Children and young people on the autism spectrum may need to have the skills for effective learning explicitly taught.

For example, general talks, timetables and work expectations need to be presented in a structured way. Structured approaches benefit all children and young people. There is a critical need to develop a highly individual profile of strengths, interests, skills and abilities as they will have implications for learning. Anxiety may also be an issue as children and young people on the autism spectrum may experience significant social interaction challenges that will need to be addressed before they are ready to learn.​
