Thank you Chestnuttree - I’ve forwarded it to several people I know whose kids are on the spectrum - it’s a really useful resource especially in the early years when people doubt their own judgement and are trying to find the right help for their child

Thanks for letting me know Safia! That's great to hear. I have no personal experience of autism, but the school and SENCO checklists seemed really helpful.
