Autism at School

For children on the Autism spectrum, school can be a frightening, even sickening place.

From high-functioning Aspergers Syndrome to severe autism at the other end of the spectrum, a child's ability to learn can be severely affected by anxiety and difficulties understanding and communicating with teachers and other students. As more children are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the pressure increases on schools and teachers trying to cope. In this programme, split into sections for easy access, teachers in New Zealand show how they are creating environments where children with ASD are able to learn and thrive, parents tell us about their experiences with school and students talk about how it is for them.
