Reasonable adjustments at school for girls with Autism

An education provider has a duty to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to make sure disabled students are not discriminated against. These changes could include providing extra support and aids.

When students feel well supported at school they can work more effectively, it has a positive impact on their social, emotional and mental health, and can prevent issues from arising or getting worse.

Professionals can benefit from the Autistic Girls Network that has a detailed list of practical reasonable adjustments to help their pupils.
