Framework Documents

The AET Framework Documents can be used by anyone working alongside autistic pupils to support the development of good autism practice. 

What are the Framework documents and how can you use them?

These resources are embedded into our Professional Development Programmes and are free to download.  They will help you improve the learning and wellbeing of autistic children and young people by supporting you to capture pupil voice, set suitable learning challenges, measure progress and identify areas where you or your setting can make improvements.

You will find a summary of our Framework Documents below.
