Peer information sheet: autism

Students that understand the importance of friendship, recognise ways in which we are all similar (such as all students having strengths and challenges), and can identify how they can be inclusive, are key to creating inclusive school communities. 

This resource helps students to identify strengths and similarities across all peers, and provides practical ways that they can include and support a student on the autism spectrum.

These activities could be completed independently, or teachers could facilitate sensitive discussion to explore student perspectives in more depth.
