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. That's why we've developed a range of autism CPD for teachers wanting to develop and gain a better understanding of the spectrum.

How does autism affect communication?
