Welcome to the subject guide for Education and Autism.  This guide is designed to direct you to the essential resources for your subject. The guide has been compiled by your Subject Librarian.

The guide has been divided into different sections such as books,  journals and other resources. When selected, each of these tabs expands to give you a further menu with more specific options such as prize winning books or library databases that will help you find the latest research

This guide covers the core resources you need for day-to-day study and research.  However, you may sometimes find other subject guides useful for related topics.

We have a large collection of children's literature and teaching resources in the library and in recent years we have worked to make our collections more representative of the diversity of children that our student teachers work with.  We are proud of our collections but we are sure that there is much more that we can do.  We welcome suggestions for resources to add to the collections and other ways in which we can improve them.

We created a list for younger readers for Black History Month:
