 All schools taking part in the Autism Friendly Schools Project 2022 / 2023 will have exclusive access to an online toolkit which was developed for the purpose of the project and has been rebuilt to improve accessibility. This toolkit comprises of a self-evaluation tool which schools can use to evaluate the levels of inclusion for their students across different areas of school life. Schools taking part will also be allocated a community of practice group, where they will have a chance to connect with other schools on the project to share their practice and experience. Schools taking part in the project are asked to nominate 2 staff members (1 mainstream teacher and 1 SET / support teacher) to attend the 3 sessions and the principal or deputy principal must attend the first half of Session 1 on 24th  November 2022. All staff in a school that has signed up to the Autism Friendly Schools Project will receive access to a 90 minute online course designed to develop their understanding of autism.
