Good Autism Practice
We were very interested this week to see the results of research at Hofstra University. The findings in this research have shown brain region similarities between people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and ADHD, Schizophrenia and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Although this is far from conclusive proof that there is a direct link between these disorders, it is further evidence that there are similarities. At People First Education we have always stated that Good Autism Practice is Good Teaching Practice. On our training courses we recommend that the strategies taught will benefit all learners. Research such as this can only help us to be more confident in our cohesive approach to teaching individuals with special educational needs.
