It is essential that any person working with, or supporting a young autistic person, has a good understanding of that child’s sensory profile, their likes and dislikes, where their strengths lie and what they may find difficult. When we realise the importance of this information and how it can help us make certain the child is supported in a respectful and kind way, we empower the child with every opportunity to realise their potential. A communication passport is the perfect way to disseminate information among staff involved with the child. It is a document which will ensure consistency of care across settings and staff. It also provides a way to share information relevant to the child when a substitute teacher is on duty or as they move onto an older class.
