When I was a teacher I had an amazing young boy in my Nursery Class who was on the autistic spectrum, he truly taught me so much. When I had the opportunity to have a Reception Class the following year I asked for him, for no other reason than he knew me and would probably settle better in my class, I felt that I knew his individual needs and how to meet them. He had a lovely family and I had got to know them a little during the previous academic year, we communicated well. I had also completed lots of training on autism so I would be best placed to meet his needs.
A ridiculous amount of tea was consumed in the process of building this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going!
