The Autism/ Complex Communication Needs team are qualified specialist teachers and specialist practitioners with vast experience of addressing the needs of children and young people on the autism spectrum from early years to higher education.
The team also support teachers and education professionals to meet the individual teaching, learning and wellbeing needs of students with autism in their educational setting. We also provide high quality autism training and deliver the Autism Education Trust (AET) training programmes and resources. This training is the DfE training of choice and we are the licensed trainers for Worcestershire.
As part of the statutory education service commissioned by the Local Authority, we provide assessment, monitoring and review of children and young people with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in line with eligibility criteria.
