I am an EP teacher in a mainstream school. Almost all my pupils are on the autistic spectrum. At the end of every school year, I sit through the end-of-year awards ceremonies hoping that one of "my" pupils will be called up to the stage. And I am always disappointed. And I feel for my pupils who don't expect to win anything anymore.They merely endure these ceremonies. And so do I. The achievements of EP pupils are rarely celebrated (at least, not in my school). Only EP and some support staff even have an inkling of the milestones some of these childrens have passed during their years in school, and how they have stood up to all the difficult challenges. I would like to have an award (in my school) to recognize and celebrate their special achievements, an award that could be awarded to an EP pupil each year at the annual Leavers' Assembly celebration. I have agreed the plan in principle with my headmistress. But I really don't know what the award could consist of, or what it could be called. Help! Does anyone have any ideas?
