What’s the difference between teaching neurotypical students and our autistic students? Not much.

This practical book argues that all students are unique. It focuses on integrating the teaching of autistic students into the teaching practice for the whole class. Based on extensive classroom experience, this highly readable book is full of anecdotes about engaged students growing in their learning. Lesson plans and checklists throughout the book help teachers get to know autistic students and help them with schoolwork, emotional regulation, communication, socialising and staying safe.

What’s the difference? gives new and experienced teachers a comprehensive approach to supporting the needs of autistic students while improving the learning experience for all. It provides teachers with informed background and classroom strategies to meet the unique needs of every student. This practical resource includes:

  • techniques to help teachers prepare for and get to know autistic students
  • anecdotes from real classrooms supported by relevant research
  • lesson plans and checklists throughout the book to help implement strategies.

This timely book champions getting rid of labels so teachers can know each student as an individual.
