Empowering People, Launching lives
Our expert team can provide specialist support, tailored to your provision, to help overcome the barriers that result in exclusions.
We believe that a specialist education can transform the lives of autistic children and young adults. Autism is lifelong, and we know early intervention and the right support have a lasting impact. That’s why we have developed a range of outreach, training and consultancy services which utilise the knowledge and expertise of our highly skilled staff to deliver life changing outcomes for autistic children and young adults in other services and at home. Our approach is person-centred and tailored to meet individual needs.
With increasing pressure on schools to achieve outstanding results, and for Local Authorities to deliver against budgets, it is not surprising that many schools are faced with significant challenges in supporting learners to achieve their desired outcomes and successfully transition to the next stage in their education.

Spot purchase model
This model is for cases where a learner’s behaviour is creating a barrier to them accessing education in their current placement. Our person-centred approach involves assessing the causes of the behaviour, and upskilling the staff team to support the learner and implement an effective intervention that ultimately will reduce exclusions. Over time our support is faded until external support is no longer required.
Spot purchase EBSA outreach
This model is a practical and supportive approach to the difficulties accessing education for learners experiencing Emotionally Based School Avoidance. Similar to the standard outreach model, we span both the school and home environments, working closely with school and local authority teams to implement function based interventions in a timely fashion, with the aim of avoiding the downward spiral of not attending school and becoming socially isolated.
