Autism: Researching Practice – Sarah Seleznyov
The Autism: Researching Practice used the structure of Research Learning Communities (Brown, 2017) to enable practitioners to connect with research on learners with autism. Pairs of senior leaders and teachers in nine London primary schools and early years settings were supported to develop their understanding of the needs of pupils with autism in their schools and to design interventions to change practice and improve pupil learning. Participants were shown how to work their way through a research cycle, which explored what worked for their pupils, families and teachers, in their own contexts. This presentation explores the impact of the project on schools, teachers and pupils.
