The way we look at things is all important in Respectful Relationships Education.
Varying needs, ways of understanding relationships, strategies for communicating effectively – students with autism need specific support, particularly as they become teenagers. As a teacher of students with autism, you might sometimes need to use a different lens.
Below you'll find a set of teaching resources, grouped into modules, covering years 5-6, 7-8 and 9. Each module includes background information, teaching activities for use with students and links to additional specialised resources.
Dr Emma Goodall, Senior Autism Advisor in South Australia, executive committee member of the Australian Society for Autism Research and author of Autism Spectrum Guide to Sexuality and Relationships contributed significantly to the development of these resources.
