Autism is a Spectrum and Each Person is Unique. You cannot use a generic approach to supporting autism, you need to understand the pupil and how their own autism impacts them. Once you understand a pupil’s autism, you can support them more effectively. You can use the strategies in Autism Progress to help them thrive. Supporting an autistic pupil effectively will have a huge impact, not only in school, but at home and the wider world.
Our software can also show academic progress for autistic learners with spiky profiles
Connecting Steps can show progress for pupils working across multiple levels in one area. For students with a spiky profile Autism Progress can highlight the areas where support is needed, but also celebrate and champion where they are making progress. Our software does this for a wide range of abilities and ages.

Pinpoint an individual student’s barriers to learning and focus on the specific challenges they face
“Using Autism Progress has enabled us to pinpoint an individual student’s current barriers to learning. We can then focus on the specific challenges facing that student, in order to help them access Hope House School’s curriculum at the appropriate level for their cognitive ability.
The process of profiling has also highlighted some additional resources that would benefit our students, particularly in terms of communication aids and sensory tools. We can now plan the selection of future resources specifically to meet each individual’s needs.”
