ASD in Education
This site is for teams who support children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Teams bring together knowledge, experience, and skills. Here you can find research and evidence, practical tips and tools, learning opportunities, and links to other useful sources of information.
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are children first and as such are wonderful, invaluable members of our communities. Every one of us has a role in providing the understanding and effective supports they need to learn, achieve and contribute.
Children with ASD learn within Te Whaariki (in early childhood) and The New Zealand Curriculum or Te Marautanga o Aotearoa in school. The tips and tools on ASD in Education are anchored in these curricula. Materials reflect effective teaching and learning practices - for the child with ASD, their peers, and the adults around them.
If you have a specific issue or information need that you want urgent support with, contact your local Special Education district office.
