  • Tim Nicholls from the National Autistic Society said: “Autistic children can often already find school an incredibly difficult and overwhelming place. It wouldn’t be right to put another barrier in for them”
  • He also stressed that policy changes to face coverings need to be introduced “…sympathetically, with compassion and with understanding about autism and the needs of autistic children.”
