What is good practice in autism education

This report from the Autism Education Trust provides good practice guidance for autism education.

The Autism Education Trust (AET) was established in November 2007 with funding from the then Department for Children, Schools and Families. It is dedicated to co-ordinating and improving education support for all children on the autism spectrum in England. In April 2011 the AET was awarded a Government grant to develop a set of standards for the delivery of good practice in education provision for children and young people with autism. These standards could form the basis for nation-wide training in education provision for children and young people with autism to be delivered by local partners and accredited by the AET.
