Specialist Teaching Team

Autism Support Team

We're a specialist team of trained teachers and teaching assistants who work with children and young people with a diagnosis of autism and those on the pathway for a diagnosis. We work with children and young people and staff in nurseries, mainstream schools and further education colleges.

Autism is a lifelong condition that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. It is a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain differences, their condition will affect them in different ways.

How we help


  • work with parents, health staff and specialist agencies to support the school in making provisions for the pupil
  • provide regular training for settings and school staff about autism
  • run ‘Drop in’ sessions for parent carers and hold regular workshops
  • advise the local authority and educational settings on inclusive autism practice
