Autism Associates can offer a range of services, which include the following..

Training and CPD:

Available on a range of issues connected to good autism practice. We specialise in supporting children with complex presentations and those with a diagnosis of Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome. We have particular expertise in promoting emotional well-being and using interactive approaches.

Individual Assessments: (When commissioned by schools, Local Authorities and other organisations)

These might explore issues of diagnosis, educational needs and provision together with recommendations on useful strategies and approaches.


Often as a follow on to training or individual assessments, specific advice can be given to settings in supporting individual children and young people.

School Improvement and Quality Assurance:

Working with schools and colleges to prepare for OFSTED and improve good autism practice, linking to the Autism Education Trust national standards and competency framework.

Curriculum and Assessment:

Supporting the development of curriculum and ways of recording, assessment and tracking to demonstrate progress for learners across the autistic spectrum.
