April was Autism Awareness Month - peer awareness lesson resources for Yr 5, 6 and 7

April 7th, 2013   111


Students complete a comic-strip adventure in which superheroes with different strengths and weaknesses must work together to solve four perils. Two of the superheroes are autistic.

The aim is to make students more aware that everyone is different and has different strengths and weaknesses. It will also increase students' understanding of autism and their acceptance of difference between them and their classmates who may have the condition.
