These Shared Resources are included as examples of what has been developed in particular settings to provide information for staff, including supply and non teaching staff.. They may have to be adapted to meet needs in other contexts. We hope they give you ideas and inspiration to develop ones to suit your own school or pupil.

A school with 2 pupils on the spectrum in a P5 class developed the idea of an individualised work station by creating an “ofﬁce” area within the class. This space was available to all pupils who recognised that they needed a quieter space in which to work. The ofﬁce was deliberately designed to give the feeling of a “grown up” space using real life ofﬁce equipment. Pupils were also given the option to wear headphones and listen to music if they wished. Very quickly this resource became a normal, accepted part of the classrooom.
