    Does anyone know a good professional association for a teacher in a special education ASD school who is new to the role of Subject Leader for Science. She is specifically looking for the most up to date curriculum details (we are currently re-writing our whole school curriculum to create a bespoke programme of study); for any CPD for herself and colleagues and geared towards additional needs and / or autism.

    The Association for Science Education (ASE) perhaps? Their website's page about learners of science with SEND is at https://www.ase.org.uk/resources/search/ages/11-14-15/topic/send-and-inclusion-49.

    I'm now retired, but while I was in full-time teaching, I conducted an online literature search for SEND subject-specific resources and advice not only for my own subject, MFL, but also for every other core and foundation subject in the National Curriculum, including science. I posted my findings on my website at http://www.specialeducationalneeds.com/home/inclusion. Follow the "science" link next to the subheading "Special eucational needs" under the heading "Meeting additional needs" and you will find eight science-related SEND documents, one of them dedicated to ASD at key stage 3 and 4. Perhaps not entirely up to date, but at least relevant to the topic. The direct link to this documentation is https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw7z_4bLjOOELTlKN1ROZVFGd2M. Hope this helps.
