Autism Outreach Service – Autism friendly classroom guides!

 

The following two booklets, a primary version and a secondary version, have been written by David Burns author of ‘Do lemons have feathers?’. They are short guides aimed at supporting teachers in setting up an autism friendly classroom. The ideas and strategies that David has chosen to share will be to the benefit of all children in the class not just those on the autism spectrum.

“We don’t have to learn a whole set of separate ideas to apply to certain pupils – they’ll benefit everyone. How good is that?”
