The IPA2 project – Improving school transition and its objectives – is an Erasmus+ project that aims at decreasing difficulties that students on the autism spectrum face, specifically during the transition from primary to secondary school, in order to tackle risks of early school leaving and disadvantage. The project targets teachers as well as autistic students and their peers to reduce risks of social exclusion, school failure, and school dropout. It aims at fostering a more inclusive, empathetic and supportive perspective amongst education professionals and non-autistic peers.
We are happy to share some good news with you: we are at the final stage of the project and the e-learning platform has been developed to host and share all the materials. The partners have also created supporting videos and guidelines for teachers.
The IPA2 e-learning platform is an online space for teachers and professionals working in the educational field with people on the autism spectrum to learn, interact and share their insights. The online platform hosts learning modules and connects participants through dedicated discussion forums.
The videos designed by Autismo Burgos feature testimonies from autistic people to help highlight the difficulties they face at school and help non-autistic peers and education staff better understand their experiences. They are also meant to trigger a reflection on how to better support them.
