Synopsis

The report explores different strategies used to integrate support for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) students into the delivery of Vocational Education. Research was carried out in both Australia and the Republic of Ireland. The Irish Tertiary/Vocational sector has developed strategies in this space both environmentally and in the use of Universal Design principles in learning and assessment. The report explored different education experiences for the ASD student by developing some short and long-term practical guidelines and strategies at a classroom and program level that teachers/trainers can use to enhance the experience of this neurodiverse cohort.
