Autism Progress is an observational assessment framework designed to help members of staff to support individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It is not a diagnostic tool.
Autism Progress uses a scale ranging from 1 to 17. Each level within this scale outlines a selection of skills and abilities that are developmentally more challenging than the previous level. We have worked with experienced special needs teachers and experts from Scottish Autism, Autism Wessex and the North East Autism Society to provide a range of ability-relevant strategies relating to the specific areas of development.
