Support and resources for home learning
Education Resources for Parents and Carers
Scottish Autism recognises that the current pandemic is impacting children and young people's education. We've developed some resources that we hope you will find useful to support home learning for your child at this challenging time.
- Education Resources - Resources to support learning at home
- Support for parents - Support for parents to manage learning at home
- Mood diary - A diary template that can be used to track your mood, stress levels, or anxiety levels across the day and week
- Circle of control - A blank template
- My week - This blank template can be used to help start a discussion, or support people to think about a particular situation during their week and plan for change. The questions can be answered by more than one person allowing families to bring together their learning from different perspectives, or this can be completed individually and then shared with family if this is preferred.
- Supporting your child's wellbeing - Support for parents and families to manage their child's wellbeing
NHS Education have released a resource pack for parents of neurodiverse children to support their child return to school. View the resource here.

COVID-19 is putting more demand on our support services while impacting our fundraising activities.
At this difficult time, donations are, as always, essential to the much needed funding of our Autism Advice Line. Our Autism Support Team are working very hard to create these informative resources to support autistic people and their families through this uncertain time, while also responding to all enquiries to the Autism Advice Line as quickly as possible.
We would be very grateful if you would make a donation to support this vital service and help us reach more autistic people and their families when they need it most!
