For reasons outlined in our Autism Toolbox, many children and young people with autism struggle at school.
This can be because they:
find it hard to leave the security of their family home
have trouble getting used to daily routines that don’t match their own
have trouble making new friends
For many children and young people with autism, difficulties dealing with school can lead to disruptive behaviour. In extreme situations, this may see your child excluded from lessons in a mainstream school.
