CASE STUDY John is 7 years and 10 months old. He has recently been given a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder. John attends a large inner city mainstream primary school and has brothers in the school. g. ‘I find this work tedious in the extreme’. Both peers and staff find it difficult to understand what he is saying as he often mumbles or whispers his words and makes little use of eye contact or gesture. He seems to ‘switch off’ if adults address him directly. John is an avid reader of books, particularly non-fiction books relating to football statistics.

They have also made attempts to use his knowledge of football-related statistics to lift his profile within the class.

These include: ● the use of structure and routine ● practitioner language ● visual systems ● individualized motivators ● practitioner awareness and knowledge ● appropriate and creative use of support staff ● knowledge of the individual child’s perspective and sensibilities ● a recognition of the role of other children and peer relationships ● a recognition of the role of parents ● a commitment to an inclusive philosophy.

It is also necessary to exclude any medical condition that might be the cause of his small stature, his clumsiness or a susceptibility to bruising.
