Happy World Autism Awareness Week 2020!
30th March – 5th April 2020.  As part of this world awareness week, we would love to celebrate everything that’s great about autism and hear from our young people what it is like through their eyes.  Please see attached activity – create a diary entry, video blog, a poem or write their own autobiographical account about what it is like living with Autism.  It would be great to be able to share these to raise awareness if students are happy for us to.
