Session Synopsis

In this session, Rebecca will outline findings from the Autistic School Staff Project, a unique research project that looks at the experiences of autistic teachers and other autistic education staff in schools. 

This project shows that autistic people are not only carrying out a range of education roles, but that they have vital skills and insights from which all in the school community can gain - but only with the right understanding and support.

Rebecca will also draw on her wider work highlighting that educational inclusion can only be achieved by supporting acceptance and diversity across the whole school community.
