Our Autism inclusion service works with children and young people aged 2 to 17 years old who may have a diagnosis of autism, or who are struggling in the areas of communication, social interaction, or emotional self-regulation. We aim to identify all children with additional needs as early as possible. Our priority is to help all children to be happy and be able to learn and progress as well as they can by providing appropriate help as early as possible.
Information and advice is provided to staff in schools, tailored to the individual child’s needs. Our aim is to work together to enable the child to achieve the best possible outcomes. Requests for inclusion support for Autism are made by schools and colleges through an inclusion referral.
The support offered provides flexible, holistic and tailored advice and support for children and young people in schools and colleges.
Requests for Inclusion support for Autism are made by schools and colleges, usually through the Schools Support Partnership (SSP).
Parental consent is always needed before support can be put in place. Any support is through parental discussion and with their agreement. We can also give support for parents to help them understand their child’s difficulties and how they affect their child and their behaviour. We can suggest strategies and approaches that are known to be effective.
A regular Autism support group is held for parents and carers, hosted by the Aiming High service. This provides a relaxed environment for parents to share experiences, and to choose topics they want to discuss. Topics covered previously include sensory processing, challenging behaviour, sleep, eating. Advice is available from knowledgeable and experienced practitioners. If requested, we arrange for a speaker to join the group for an expert view on a particular subject.
