ASDs is often referred to as the ‘hidden disability’. Like every other disability, careful thought and consideration needs to be given to services provided for individuals on the spectrum.
Self- evaluation helps schools to look at their evidence base for a set of targets in order to improve provision
It is important to emphasise to schools that the audit is there to help not hinder. Each will be at a different starting point and have different experience and knowledge of ASDs.
The following slides show that targets need to be SMART.
Evidence from the Self-Evaluation Tool can be used to inform the School’s Access and Inclusion Plan and provide evidence that duties are being met under the Disability Equality Duty (2006)
Examine your school’s plan. Are the needs of pupils with ASDs addressed under the duties?
Remember ASDs is a disability and so the school has a legal obligation to consider and meet the needs of pupils with ASDs.
