Promoting multidisciplinary teamwork for autism: an English school experience

This paper describes the positive and challenging aspects relating to the implementation of the RTS model in an English residential school for children on the autism spectrum, with a specific focus on the professionals’ involvement and on the process of enabling staff to improve the way they work as a team. The paper highlights how SCERTS can be used as a pedagogical framework for working with children on the autism spectrum in a multidisciplinary way, thus empowering the professionals and strengthening their ability to understand the perspective of the child with autism.
