Hillpark Autism Buddy Network
Hillpark Secondary School
Hillpark Autism Buddy Network have supported fellow pupils with autism in mainstream education, giving up their lunchtimes, study periods and time outside of school to support their learning. The group have focussed on inter-personal relationships, communication, organisation, work both in and outside of school as well as leisure activities and safe use of social media. As a result their fellow pupils have enjoyed an enhanced learning experience at school and an increase in their confidence and self-esteem.
