School Assemblies....a teacher needs help!

Hi,

I am a teacher at an SEN school and I dread assemblies.

my pupils with ASD do not like assemblies (to be fair neither do i).

i do not believe they are ASD friendly....

i am looking for suggestions on how to make assemblies ASD friendly...types of activity etc...

pat the moment assemblies are long, verbal and comprise of a lot of certificate giving out or announcements.

what can we do to make assemblies better? What would the ASD pupils like?

ideas please.
