Autism campaign offers free resources, tools and advice to schools

Resources and projects
Schools are being offered access to an extensive range of free autism resources as well as expert advice.

Launched by the National Autistic Society (NAS) on Monday (April 27), the initiative offers resources catering for learners from nursery through to secondary.

It is all part of the charity’s My World campaign, which will also offer those signing up a welcome pack and fortnightly emails with further advice and useful tools to help support students.

The campaign is being supported by NAS Young Campaigner Christopher Boyd Harris, 16, from Frederick Bremer School in east London, and his teaching assistant Ayesha Choudhury, who both appeared in Channel 4 documentary Educating the East End last year.

More than 1 in 100 people in the UK have autism, a life-long condition that affects how a person communicates with and relates to others, as well as how they make sense of the world.
