This is the third in a new series of Autism and Nature heritage guides! written to help parents, carers and teachers to engage children with autism and related disabilities with their local heritage. Where possible we have chosen heritage places located in the countryside, by the sea or in gardens. The guide also includes a case story about a project called ‘Toys Through Time’, describing visits to Chelmsford Museum for pupils from two local special schools. ‘Toys Through Time’ was generously funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Printed copies (free of charge) are being distributed by Essex County Council Short Breaks for Disabled Children and Young People. The book is also available to download on our publications page. The publication of this book was generously sponsored by the Eastern Counties Educational Trust Limited, The Alastair and Patricia Stewart Charitable Fund (c/o Essex Community Foundation), Essex County Council Short Breaks for Disabled Children and Young People, and the Fowler, Smith and Jones Trust.
