Autism Spectrum Team

This is a specialist team, part of the Special Educational Needs Service (SENS) which works with children and young people from 3 to post-16 year olds with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. We offer advice and support for parents, carers and schools and accept referrals from a range of professionals in consultation with the family. See link below for further information.

  • FLAG – a group for all families with children up to the age of 25
