Autism Plus + services

Our Autism Plus+ service provides assessment and intervention for children who may be on the Autistic Spectrum, have a related disorder or already have a diagnosis but need support and planned intervention.

The Autistic “Spectrum” can include children who may have Autism, Asperger Syndrome or autistic features. The use of “spectrum” reflects the considerable differences in individual children. However all share certain features and have difficulties in:– 

  • Social Communication
  • Social Interaction
  • Imaginative play and flexibility of thought

Our Autism Plus+ service seeks to work with all children on the Autistic Spectrum and provide a thorough intervention service to support the child both at school and within the home. Many families of children with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder have lengthy waiting periods for a diagnosis and experience a shortage of follow up services. The results can be both frustrating and stressful for the family.

Our Autism Plus+ Service seeks to provide families with a fast and responsive programme of support and intervention reducing stress and improving the life of the child and in doing so that of the entire family.
