Successful inclusion: what can we learn from the lived experiences of autistic children and young people in mainstream schools?


SEND Strand

Drawing on a systematic review of over 1500 pieces of primary research, this talk looks at successful inclusion from the perspective of mainstream autistic learners themselves. Focusing on the lived experience of autistic learners and giving primacy to their voices, this talk will highlight the key aspects of inclusive educational practice that autistic learners identify as having the most significant positive impact on their lives.
