Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Understand what having Asperger syndrome means for your students. Access a wide range of strategies and approaches for overcoming the challenges it poses within a school context.

Evidence underpinning this approach

Tony Atwood's ' A Guide for Parents and Professionals' plus assorted research references as listed in the Pocketbook in 'Further Reading and Resources'. Much of the book is based on first hand information about impact of strategies from teachers, SENCos and young people with Asperger Syndrome.

How users/participants can evaluate success
  • By a decrease in the number of incidents such as 'meltdowns'
  • By improved progress at school and at home, academically, socially and emotionally
  • By the degree of comfort and confidence staff feel when a new AS student arrives at the school
Follow-up activities and support

The book contains further reading and resources and a list of helpful websites with follow up material.
