Back-to-School and Covid-19 Information Centre

We are here to help you support autistic children and young people during the Covid-19 pandemic and transition back to school.

You can find below our latest Tools for Teachers Covid-19 edition booklet and a wealth of support materials from our partners across England including two detailed case studies with practical planning tools, impact assessment and sensory profiles. 

All of our Covid-19 content is free to access and download. Our popular Tools for Teachers resource normally cost £40 for individuals and £150 for organisations but, in response to the circumstances, we have created a complementary collection of 6 tools that we think you will find most helpful in the current situation.
