Supporting Students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at Secondary School: A Parent and Student Perspective
Tobias, Adele
Educational Psychology in Practice, v25 n2 p151-165 Jun 2009
This paper describes a small-scale research project undertaken in July 2007, which focused on a group of students with a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) currently attending a mainstream secondary school. Three focus groups were held with students in Years 9 and 11 and with their parents in order to explore current practice on additional support at secondary school for students with ASD. Several aspects of support at school were positively evaluated by the participants. It also examines how support could be provided in the future to address perceived additional needs. It concludes with several implications for planning for support in the future.
