Social communication/autism support

We support children and young people aged four to 19 years with social communication needs.

We can provide:

  • advice, support and training to your child's school
  • assessment of your child's needs within their school setting
  • strategies and resources
  • support to help your child's school to cater for your child needs
  • support with transition from nursery to foundation as well as from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 and into adulthood
  • consultation meeting with families.
