Alison Ekins and Hannah Campbell reveal the impact - both positive and challenging - of lockdown and on-line learning on autistic students. They provide a range of guidance and resource for addressing the diverse needs of these students
The lockdown and the return to school have been particularly challenging for children with Autism

The recent lockdowns and school closures have provided a unique experience for our autistic students and their families. For some, the closure of schools has been welcome, as it has been in schools where they have faced most of their challenges and difficulties, linked to sensory overload and the social anxieties that they experience within the busy school environment. For others, however, the impact of the closure of schools has been an almost traumatic experience for them, with the loss of key routines that have been essential to them in providing a consistent, stable framework for their day to day lives. This HOW TO explores a range of issues and provides resources and strategies for working with students along the autistic spectrum in these contexts … and readers will also find these valuable assets when working with all students.
