Support for Nurseries,
Schools & Practitioners

As a professional in the field of education or health, you will be aware of the additional support needed by autistic children or children with communication differences.  You will also appreciate the potential within each child to flourish and to develop as a confident communicator and active learner.

Child happily engaged in communication and play

An estimated 10% of children in the UK have long-term or persistent speech, language and communication needs – including autistic children, who may also have additional needs associated with their condition.

Whether you are a specialist practitioner or a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCO); a nursery worker or class teacher; a headteacher or other senior leader – we can help you to support the children under your care, alongside your colleagues.  We can do this by working directly with you and the children in your own setting, and also through our bespoke consultancy and tailored training.

We specialise in working with children from 2 years, providing a clear and structured focus on key aspects of communication, behaviour, and emotional development, in response to assessed needs.

How we can help

We know that staff in nurseries and primary schools sometimes want help to understand how best to meet the needs of autistic children in their setting or those with communication differences, and we know that this kind of help and expertise is often difficult to access.

You may have an autistic child with or a child with communication differences in your class and be unsure about the best strategies to support him/her.  You may be concerned about a child’s speech and language development.  You may be a professional wanting to find out more about autism, how it affects children’s development, and strategies for effective support.

Our skilled team of specialist teachers and therapists has many years of experience working with children with developmental difficulties .  Our multidisciplinary team enables us to provide either integrated or discrete programmes of consultancy, intervention and support specific to you in your setting.

We also provide training in aspects of intervention and support for autistic children and children with communication differences.

The difference we make

We work within Early Years and primary school settings to provide specialist expertise in partnership with staff, alongside the child and his/her parents or carers.  Our multidisciplinary team enables us to take a holistic approach to providing relevant assessments, strategies and practical advice according to the range of needs of the child and of staff within their environment.  We are also able to offer consultancy, workshops and training to embed further key principles of good practice in autism education.

Our Autism Early Support services are based on the same, proven approaches of our specialist nursery which has received successive “outstanding” ratings from Ofsted.
