Creating champions for autism - changing attitudes to autism through a peer awareness programme

14:00 - 15:00

This seminar will describe a successful initiative which encouraged children to act as ‘Champions for Autism’ and explain how practitioners can implement similar projects in their own schools. Raising awareness and understanding of autism has school-wide benefits, allowing children with autism to thrive socially, emotionally and educationally alongside their peers. Only in this way will we be able to cultivate an inclusive and accepting society that embraces and celebrates difference.

KS 1-2, Levels 1-3
