ISSA Member in Ireland Develops Learning Resource to Support Autistic Students

Tags: learning, tool

Bridge Back to School” - an autism-friendly learning resource for summer 2020 was developed by the ISSA member Mary Immaculate College, together with AsIAm and SuperValu. This resource has been developed to support autistic students across the education system from pre-school to post-primary level to begin to prepare the summer months for the return to school in September.

For autistic children, the impact of COVID-19 pandemic is magnified by the challenges presented in terms of the disruption to their routine and the reassurance that the predictability of pre-school and school brings, while acknowledging also that for some children, there may be a sense of relief stemming from a reduction of anxiety generated by the pressure to go to school and participate in social activities.

Bridge Back to School” is available now in SuperValu stores in Ireland and can also be accessed online from their website. Later it will also be available in the Knowledge Hub section on the ISSA website.
