In order to be fully inclusive of all children and young people on the autism spectrum, whatever their interests, abilities or learning and support needs, it is beneficial for schools to adopt a whole school approach to teaching, learning and support.
A whole school approach focuses on the responsibilities of all members of the school community to ensure all children and young people have the opportunity to maximise their learning experience. In turn, children and young people on the autism spectrum need to clearly understand the whole school ethos, expectations, and rules of behaviour.
