Resources for working with students who have ASD

Two TKI websites – Te Kete Ipurangi – provide specialised teaching resources for working with students who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Inclusive Education website

  • information about ASD
  • how to identify needs and strengths, and access support
  • how to support key areas of learning and well-being: communication, social interaction, thinking, and positive behaviour
  • how to use whole-class strategies to support students with ASD.
