Autism Awareness and Acceptance

This week is Autism Awareness and Acceptance Week and we’ve shared an assembly today to talk about what autism is, how autistic people may think differently and we have also discussed how differences make us special 🧩 Some of the children shared their own experiences of being autistic or about autistic people in their family which was incredible (we adults can learn a lot from our children ❤️) and we considered how we could support autistic people that we know in our community, school and family. We shared some ideas about how to support others by showing kindness, taking our time to explain and keeping our promises. Well done everyone – we hope you can share what you learned with your grown ups to spread more awareness and acceptance too ⭐️
