Abstract

With more than one in 100 children on the autism spectrum in England, every teacher should expect to encounter autistic students in their classes. These students are considered to be more “difficult” to include effectively than those with other forms of SEN. Indeed one quarter of these children have been excluded from education, and many suffer traumatic experiences in the lead up to this exclusion.

In this report, we examine the experiences of a group of autistic children who have been previously excluded from education, and who are currently re-integrating into school life.
