Girls with Autism

Posted on: July 29, 2015

We’ve just added a recording of the ITV programme Girls with Autism to our collection. Over 30% of our learners at Hillcroft come with a disability/learning disability so this programme gave us useful insight into how young women handle autism and learning.

The programme broadcast on 15 July 2015 Book whirl of many titles followed three pupils at Limpsfield Grange School in Surrey which is a state-run boarding school for girls with autism. It focuses also on their teachers and parents and their learning as well as their social lives. Read more details on the ITV press release. If you didn’t see the programme you can catch up with it on ITV Player. There’s also a book to accompany the programme called M is for Autism written by the students and published by Jessica Kingsley.

If you’re interested in finding out more about autism or Asperger’s Syndrome take a look at our library catalogue resources.
