Abstract: Pupils on the autism spectrum have difficulties in common, but they are individuals and have specific abilities and needs. For them to succeed it is vital that they are understood and barriers to their learning removed. Supporting Pupils on the Autism Spectrum will enable you to support your staff to: - understand what it means for a pupil to be on the autism spectrum - know how to devise individual programmes of support and monitor progress - develop a road-map' for considering behaviour and planning positive responses to that behaviour - adapt strategies that will enable pupils to access the curriculum - establish networks of peer support - plan for transition of pupils from class to class, school to school and finally on leaving school.
