About

Hi! My name is Aspa.

I'm inclusive educator - Autism & Neurodiversity Specialist teacher (with QTS, MA) and inclusionist (a person who advocates a policy or practice of inclusion, especially one of not excluding anyone on the grounds of race, gender, religion, age, disability, etc.).

For the past 3 years, I've been working as a teacher in an autistic classroom in South London. At the same time, I am a greek tutor for students who learn greek as a second language with experience of seven years.

I created this blog in order to share teaching ideas for inclusive and autism-friendly environments, as well as my personal views about neurodiversity and inclusive education. I believe that a holistic, interest-based, and cross-curriculum experiential learning approach enhances children's confidence and self-esteem and fosters academic, communication, behavioural, executive function, social, and life skills.

Autistic Pride Day

Updated: Jul 7, 2021


Autistic Pride Day is a pride celebration for autistic people and is celebrated on June 18 each year.

The aim of this day is to:

  • raise awareness about autism and to shift attitudes from medical-oriented views away towards acceptance and realisation that autism is a difference

  • recognise the importance of pride for autistic people as well as the benefits that autistic pride brings to the society.

Autistic Pride Day is represented by the rainbow infinity symbol. This symbol represents the diversity of autistic people, the infinite possibilities and variations in the autistic community.

As today is Autism pride, I would like to post something related to it! 5 Facts about Autism: 1. Autism isn't an illness that needs to be cured. Autism is a neurological condition that means the brain process information differently.

2. Autistic people have a wonderful sense of humour.

3. Autistic people may hyper focus on preferred interests and may have extensive knowledge in certain topics.

4. Autistic people can mask in order to avoid judgement, punishment and to be accepted.

5. Autism has no look. Autistic people come in all shapes and sizes genders, races and ages. When you've met one autistic person, you've met one autistic person. Please stop telling people 'oh, you don't look autistic' it really isn't a compliment.



Happy Autistic Pride!
