  1. Hi I am currently writing an assignment as part of my Postgrad Cert in Autism and would be keen to hear your ideas and thoughts on the following title.
    <u><font size="3">Consider the practice that generally exists within special schools and comment on the additional or different skills staff might need to teach children who are on the autism spectrum.</font></u>Many thanks Jodie

    The title leaves me wondering why the question-setter appears to be requesting an exclusive focus on "special schools" when many (most?) learners with autistic spectrum conditions/disorders are now in mainstream schools or in units attached to ordinary schools. I work in a mainstream secondary school with a sizeable minority of students with ASD, so I can offer information about such students in mainstream settings, but I have no direct experience of their education elsewhere.
