What is Autism?

Autism is a neurological difference which can affect people in varying degrees. Autistic people often find it hard to communicate and interact with those around them. They do not always understand how people think or feel and can become upset or anxious in unfamiliar situations. Staff at Warren Wood have received training to support children who are Autistic. Personalised strategies are used within school to support children needing adjustments to enable them to reach their potential and develop skills for life.

Next steps

Referrals can be made through school to the ASD Pathway if sufficient evidence is available to suggest a diagnosis of Autism will be beneficial, and if school and parents or carers are in agreement. Please speak with your child's class teacher or the SENDCo for further information.
