In this short video, parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) talk about the importance of good two-way communication with their children’s secondary schools. Some parents have regular meetings or use a communication book. The parents say it’s important to be an advocate for your child, but don’t make it a battle – aim to work together with the school to help your child have a positive school experience.
