Download – Guidance and instructions for using the progression framework

The AET schools autism progression framework is a comprehensive interactive assessment tool for pupils on the autism spectrum. It is designed to support staff in identifying learning priorities and measuring progress in areas which fall outside the national curriculum. These areas relate closely to autism ‘differences’ as identified within other AET materials and the impact of these on pupils’ social, emotional, independence and learning needs.

The progression framework has been drawn up for the AET by Autism Associates (Suzanne Farrell, Ruth Fidler, Phil Christie, Linda Lyn-Cook). It is based on a literature review and consultation with a wide range of practitioners, parents and people on the autism spectrum – download here.

A half day / twilight training session on using the AET schools autism progression framework is available through AET hubs – here.
