Welcome to ASSP

The Autistic School Staff Project

The ASSP aims to understand better the experiences and needs of autistic education staff in range of roles in schools: teachers, teaching assistants, SENCos, deputy Head teachers, Head teachers etc., and visiting professionals. The project is underpinned by two key principles: 1. To facilitate diversity and inclusion across the school community 2. To support the rights of school staff members to equality of access and inclusion in the workplace.
