    What is this strategy about?
    Small changes can help pupils with Autism Spectrum Condition feel more confident, more part of the class and able to progress more.

    Why is it important for teachers to have an in-depth understanding of autism?
    It's essential that teachers are open and receptive to the signs and characteristics of the autism spectrum. Without a proper understanding of the condition, you won't be able to give the autistic children in your class the correct support they need.

    How does autism affect communication?
    For children with autism, communication development happens differently because of the sensory challenges associated with the disorder. So, autistic children might be slower to develop language skills and can struggle to understand what others are saying to them.
