‘How can the teaching of mathematics in mainstream schools be adapted to reduce the barriers to learning for children with autistic spectrum disorders across a range of abilities and stages of development?'
ASD is a common need and most, if not all, mainstream schools will have students with an ASD diagnosis. Many stereotypes exist about the needs of students with ASD and how best to meet them. The purpose of this Work Group will be to research which approaches have shown some success in mathematics and whether they are age and stage dependent.
As this is a Research and Innovation Work Group involvement requires a commitment to engage in research and to report back to the Work Group. Participants will need to have access to one or two pupils who have or are suspected to have ASD.
Participants can be from Primary or Secondary Schools and it is open to Teachers, SENCOs and Support Assistants.
The Work Group is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
