ASD Friendly School

Welcome to our ASD Friendly School Page.



Here you can access information about ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) as well as learn how we, at Gaer Primary School, support children with the condition.


Meet our ASD Friendly School Leaders


We are currently working towards achieving our ASD Friendly School Award. We will keep you posted on our progress. 


The first step on our journey of becoming an ASD friendly school has been providing training for all our school staff. Here at Gaer Primary School our staff have an excellent wealth of knowledge about ASD. All staff work collaboratively to support pupils with the condition. 


If you would like to learn more about autism please take a few minutes to watch this short video clip. It demonstrates the daily challenges a person with autism faces.  




Introduction to ASD

Here you will learn more about the three main difficulties a person with ASD can encounter. These can include:

  • Social interaction
  • Social communication
  • Social imagination 





As well as suffering the above side effects, people with ASD can also be extremely sensitive.
