Autism awareness day

Staff and students at the Beech Academy marked Autism Awareness day with an assembly for students.  Students came into school wearing a onesie to make them stop and consider what it is like to have autism.

For parents and friends of the school who want to know more about autism, the National Autism society is worth a visit.  They have also got a YouTube channel with some excellent video clips like the one below.

We hope you join us in spending a few moments to think about autism and how we can better understand our children and friends who are autistic.
