The term ‘Autism Spectrum Condition’ (ASC) is used to describe the range of the autism spectrum, including Asperger syndrome. Word limits should be set but also explained to students with ASC. Teachers should also made explicit what a finished essay/report/dissertation should ‘look’ like. This should include the format as well as content, and what is expected from an academic piece of work of this kind. Students should have the opportunity to be able to discuss and demonstrate progress with their teacher/support staff. Similarly, if possible, students should have the opportunity to discuss drafts of their work. Teachers should be aware however that some students with ASC may lack the language required for articulating feelings and not think to ask for help, teachers should therefore be proactive in providing opportunities for students to ask for such help. It may be necessary to be explicit about what is reasonable when asking for help, being clear about when and where to meet, how long can be devoted to the meeting and listing the topics that will be covered in the meeting in writing.
