World Autism Awareness Week at School
Join with us learn more about autism, raise awareness and funds by taking part in interesting and fun activities at your school!
Get started now with a free guide and free teaching resources, like assembly and lesson plans, to support you to help your students understand their autistic classmates better.
We know that indifference, intolerance and hostility towards autistic people and their families leads to extreme social isolation, mental illness and profoundly unhappy lives.
But, we also know that helping young people – as well as teachers – to understand autism as they grow up will equip a new generation with the knowledge to accept and empathize with autistic people.
At least 1 in 100 people in the UK have autism… so chances are there are autistic people at your school, who you see every day.
What will the week involve?
We’ve done all the work so you don’t have to! All you need to do is download your pack of free materials to use during the week to help you:
learn about autism and in fun, imaginative lessons, activities and assemblies that are level-specific
plan and take part in amazing fundraising activities
help spread the word about why it’s so important to understand and accept autism.
