Excluded from school: Autistic students’ experiences

Description:

Excluded from school: Autistic students’ experiences of school exclusion and subsequent re-integration into school

Abstract

All children have the right to receive an education and to be included in school. Yet young people on the autism spectrum, who are already vulnerable to poor health and social outcomes, are at increased risk of school exclusion. The current study sought to understand the key factors surrounding the school exclusion experiences of a group of autistic students with particularly complex needs, and their subsequent re-integration into education.
