Hello and welcome to asdteacher.com
This is my first post and it will hopefully be the first of many!
My name is Steph and I teach in a primary special school for children with autistic spectrum disorder and severe learning difficulties in the East London borough of Hackney.
I studied Early Childhood Studies combined with Special Needs and Inclusion Studies for my undergraduate degree followed by a Post Graduate Certificate of Education specialising in the teaching of Early Years.
I have worked with some amazing children over recent years who have inspired me to learn as much as possible about how to positively teach and support children with a ASD.
I have started this blog in order to contain all the information and resources I find valuable and interesting in one place. Knowing how useful and important this information is for me and teaching, it is likely that other education professionals, parents or anyone supporting children with ASD will also find this useful. I also wanted somewhere to express my thoughts and opinions and to share them with you so we can learn from each other.
