Teachers TV: Secondary SEN - Understanding Autism
Last updated 14 April 2013, created 29 June 2010, viewed 4,017
Twenty-year-old John Simpson, who himself is on the autistic spectrum, guides us through the theory and reality of life for many ASD pupils at secondary school.
As well as sharing his own story, he speaks to Autism West Midlands' Sue Hatton about the condition, and Mike Collins from the Natio More…nal Autistic Society, who reveals the terms used to describe people on the spectrum.
We hear from the parents of an autistic child about their day to day life, and we hear ideas from the experts about how teachers can further include ASD pupils.
