It is individual to each child (young person) and relies on –careful observation –identification of concepts/skills requiring further –exploration –dialogue with parents –other professionals –interpretation of information (Autism Toolbox p 62)

6 Social Curriculum 1.Assessment must consider social and communication skills 2.The developmental profile of children and young people with ASD can be mixed or spiked. 3.The pupil may be very inconsistent in the execution of tasks. 4.They may demonstrate competency but then appear to have lost the skill or the motivation to carry out the task therefore ASD is central and not peripheral..
