Abstract

This article describes how autism was explained to a group of Year 10 students. This was in response to an autistic boy feeling socially rejected in a mainstream school. An adaptation of the whole class session of a ‘Circle of Friends’ was used. The process served to challenged the stereotypic ideas the class held about the autistic boy and helped them to change their attitudes towards him.
