During the 2017/18 academic year, funded through the Department for Education, we worked in partnership with our Lead Inclusion Schools to develop a guide to support practitioners develop an understanding of autism, including related social and communication difficulties, within the context of PE and sport.
Autism is a life-long developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. People with autism may see, hear and feel the world differently to others. As a teacher or someone who works with young people, you may see young people in your school copying or mimicking behaviour from others around them. They can appear exhausted due to the constant effort to appear similar to other people.
