Guidance for Teachers

Transitioning Autistic Pupils

 Back to School​

A Guide for Schools written by ​ Autistic People


We here at the One Stop Shop Aberdeen and Triple A’s are dedicated to helping people develop their knowledge and understanding of autism.

Drawing on our own lived experiences of being autistic, the professional experiences of our staff members who have worked with autistic children and teens as a teacher and PSA, as well as our experiences of parenting autistic children, we offer insight into what it is like to be autistic, and how to support other autistic people.

The following has been written in collaboration with our staff, other autistic people, secondary and primary school teachers and parents. While this document does not cover all the information we could share about autism, it looks at some of what we feel is some of the most important information to be aware of right now with the transition back into school.

If there is anything you would like more support with, or more information about, please contact us to let us know.
