They are designed to support teachers in mainstream schools who wish to gain advanced and specialist skills. This unit considers the impact that the various people within your school and from external agencies who may come into regular contact with a pupil with autism may have on pupils, and identifies ways in which you can support communication and collaboration to ensure the best outcomes for pupils.
