The above document (which you can download for free) has been produced by Karen Hume and the Autism Team at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute. It covers 7 key stages to support individuals with ASD:

  • Support Understanding
  • Offer opportunities for expression
  • Prioritize coping and calming skills
  • Maintain routines
  • Build new routines
  • Foster connections (from a distance)
  • Be aware of changing behaviours

Each of these stages has extensive advice and information on how to implement the support. There are also many examples of various apps and resources to help with this.
