Liverpool City Council is celebrating an exciting project involving some of our autistic young people from across the city.

The Council has come together with partners, the Liverpool Parent Carer Forum and Alder Hey as part of the National ‘Autism in Schools’ Project.

Liverpool City Council is encouraging school pupils with autism to share their views and experiences with their teachers. This new initiative has been designed to improve knowledge and understanding of autism.

This person-centred approach is not only improving inclusion within the city’s schools but is also helping teachers to better understand the challenges faced by students, so that reasonable adjustments can be put in place.

Pupil Voice Project

As part of the project, the Council has been working with an amazing group of autistic young people from several schools across the city to produce a video, which shows their lived experiences of being an autistic young person in a mainstream secondary school.

The video will be used as a resource to educate staff and peers across schools and health services across Merseyside.

Jenny Turnross, Director of Children and Young People’s Services said:  

“I am delighted Liverpool City Council has joined with partners to lead on such an important project. Listening to the lived experience of pupils and their families is crucial when increasing awareness and understanding of autism.

“Work like this allows professionals to gain invaluable insight to support all students more effectively and promote inclusive classrooms where every child can thrive.”
