The new AET Good Autism Practice Report 2019 consists of a set of guidelines written by members of the Autism Centre of Education and Research (ACER) at Birmingham University. The guidelines have been generated from a review of the research evidence, current policy documents, expert opinion, statutory guidance and from the views of autistic people. They identify 8 key principles of good autism practice in education. These principles are designed to support settings across the age range from Early Years to Post 16 to develop their practice .The aim is that staff will exercise their professional judgement and adapt practice to their own settings, as all settings are different, as are the needs of individuals. A separate report illustrates how these principles have been adapted in practice to meet the needs of children and young people with autism.
