This resource contains a fully editable and interactive lesson / assembly presentation on autism and Autism Awareness Day (2nd April) and Autumn Awareness Week. I had the privilege of teaching and working with many amazing young people on the autistic spectrum for twenty years. People with autism are often misunderstood. Hopefully, this presentation will help others to be more informed about, and more understanding of, autism.
The presentation includes sections on
What is autism?
Signs of autism
Social Communication Difficulties
Social Interaction Difficulties
Rigid Thought Processes
Repetitions and Rituals
Gifts and Talents
Famous people With Autism / Asperger's
