  • ‘quality first’ classroom and school practice; ( generally, including school policies, staff, leadership, classroom practice, and approaches to learning, and represents the bulk of educational practice)
  • specialist approaches that are relevant for working with many pupils with SEN and their families; (reflects more specialist support for children with special educational needs generally (e.g., support for families, which is particularly critical because families of children with SEN are a vulnerable population).

highly specialist approaches that might be required specifically for pupils with autism. (refers to highly specialist approaches to education (e.g., augmentative communication approaches).
