Children spend a large percentage of their time at school, and having the appropriate level and type of support in place for your child is important.

Many children with autism attend mainstream schools and some require very low levels of support, if any. Other children may require higher levels of support to help them in one or more areas for example:

  • cognition and learning
  • communication and social skills
  • emotional and mental wellbeing; and
  • sensory/physical needs.

The Education workshop covers what educational establishments are legally required to do, your rights as a parent/carer, and the processes involved in obtaining the appropriate levels of support.
