Although there is a great deal that schools can, and do, do to support autistic children to access schools, that great advocate for inclusion in education, Mary Warnock, agreed with Lorna Wing that for some autistic children there is no such thing as true inclusion in mainstream school (in Cigman, 2006. For some, full time mainstream school by its very nature ise so challenging, exhausting, isolating and downright frightening that these children experience no true inclusion at all. Some parents faced with this challenge choose to home educate, but for many this is neither a practical nor desirable option. This article explores a third way: neither full-time school nor full-time home, but a negotiated, agreed, respectful, informed and professional approach that places the needs of the autistic child firmly at its centre
