Every Teacher campaign
With more than 1 in 100 children on the autism spectrum, and 70% of those children in mainstream schools, every teacher in the UK will teach an autistic child. But there is no compulsory autism training for teachers. So in February 2016 we launched the Every Teacher campaign to get autism training for every new teacher.
This campaign action is now closed – but thank you to the thousands of people who signed our open letter.
