Supporting Girls with Autism

The Supporting Girls with Autism project worked with 11 Youth Sport Trust Lead Inclusion Schools during the academic year 2021/22. Each Lead Inclusion School was able to work with multiple schools on this project where appropriate. The following report includes feedback on the Supporting Girls with Autism toolkit as well as two case study examples of how schools have used the resources.

Of those young people, 91% (146) had additional support needs, 55% (89) were eligible for free school meals, 30% (48) were from ethnically diverse communities. However, four of the eleven Lead Inclusion Schools have struggled to run the programme this year due to COVID-19 and staffing issues.

Leads were very positive about the project, giving it an average net promoter score of 9.3 out of 10. Eight out of ten of the leads gave the project the top score of 10. Leads relished the opportunity this project has given them to focus on youth voice and work with targeted groups of young people.
