Pupil Support

 

We support pupils with a diagnosis of an Autism in mainstream schools, we will also support children who are waiting for a diagnosis. Support in schools usually begins with one of the specialists observing a child in the class. We can offer support with a variety of issues such as:


·         Including the child more fully into the class


·         Exploring ways in which the curriculum and work can be adapted


·         Understanding communication, sensory and behaviour difficulties


·         Developing the pupil's and other pupils’ understanding of ASD


·         Supporting pupils through the process of school transition

 

 

Contact Us
 

Class teachers, SENCOs, Educational Psychologists and GP’s, can all make referrals for any pupil who has a diagnosis of an Autism or is awaiting their diagnosis or who have  Social Communication differences. . 

 

We can be contacted by e-mail on:
