I would be very grateful if anybody would be able to point me in the right direction for useful resources or guidance materials, that will assist the delivery of pedestrian training for pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

Resources for ASD

I have found the London Child Safety Groups Makaton handbook for road safety very useful. It works well with children and adults with ASD and other learning difficulties, whether or not they use Makaton as a language tool.
I'm not sure who you go to to obtain it as I haven't bogyuht one in a couple of years - it used to be around 25 a copy - a nice hard back book so durable for repeated use.
