Autism: an introduction and Autism Spectrum Disorder – A Teachers toolkit were jointly developed with the Irish Society for Autism, Autism NI, and the Departments of Education both North and South.

Autism: an introduction

This resource has been produced for parents wanting to know more about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We hope it will answer any queries you might have when you first hear your child may have autism, it may also be useful to those working with people with Autism. In addition, we hope it will be of interest to those who simply want to know more about the condition.

Autism Spectrum Disorder – A teachers toolkit

Programme Overview: The interactive eLearning programme has been designed as a practical guide for teachers in mainstream schools who work with pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. The content gathers together good practice from parents, teachers and educational advisors.
