Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a person communicates and relates to people around them. Children and adults with autism have difficulties with everyday social interaction. People with autism can often have accompanying learning disabilities but everyone with the condition shares a difficulty in making sense of the world. There is also a condition called Asperger's Syndrome, which is a form of autism used to describe people who are usually at the higher functioning end of the autistic spectrum.

People with autism generally experience three main areas of difficulty; these are known as the triad of impairments (social interaction, social communication and imagination). In addition to this triad, repetitive behaviour patterns and resistance to change in routine are often characteristic. Programmes like TEACCH are often used to work with autistic pupils, as well as ABA therapy.

Main duties will include:

  • supporting children on a 1-2-1 basis
  • acting as a support to the teacher when working in a group setting

To be considered for this role or any similar positions you must have:

  • Experience/interest in a school/education Special Needs setting and knowledge of ASD/Autism.
  • Experience/interest working with Special Educational Needs, in particular Autism/ASD and challenging behaviour
  • Experience with PECS/TEACCH or Makaton is also an advantage
