Hello and welcome to ASD Teacher! A website for strategies, resources and information on teaching children with autism.
My name is Steph and I teach in a primary special school for children with autism (ASD – Autistic Spectrum Disorder) and severe learning difficulties in the London borough of Hackney, United Kingdom.
I am also developing and leading the schools outreach service supporting other schools in Hackney to develop their practice with teaching children with autism. I also run training sessions about understanding autism and the effective strategies used to teach and support pupils with autism.
I have taught many amazing children over the years who have inspired me to learn as much as possible about how to best teach and support children with autism, to enable them to achieve and reach their full potential, whilst importantly- having fun!
I started this blog in order to contain all the information and resources I find valuable and helpful in one place. Knowing how useful and important this information is for me and how much it has had an impact on my teaching, I thought it is likely that other education professionals, parents or anyone teaching/supporting children with autism will also find this useful. I have made many resources whilst teaching and I want to share the ones that have worked really well. I also wanted somewhere to express my thoughts and opinions and to share them with you. It is really important that we share good practice in order to give children with autism the best eduction possible and so we can all learn from each other.
Please leave a comment or ask a question on any of my posts.
