Lack of support for autistic pupils in Scotland

An article in the National suggests that autistic children and those with other additional support needs (ASN) in Scotland are not receiving appropriate support at mainstream schools. The article includes figures that suggest only 1.2% of children have a coordinated support plan in place, and highlights the attainment gap for children with ASN. The article features case studies of autistic pupils’ experiences of mainstream secondary school.
