Our Services

Autism Advice and Support

  • Whole organisational support to develop inclusive strategies
  • Tailored support for individual or small groups of staff within settings
  • Regular or one off problem solving sessions

Our service is informal, friendly and supportive. We will work with you to find solutions to help you to become more responsive to the needs of children, young people and adults within your setting. We can tailor a package to your needs and can be flexible in how this is offered.

Supporting Parents, Carers and Voluntary Groups

We would love to hear from groups and individuals who might want advice about setting up and running regular support groups.
As well as being professionals, we also have personal experience of autism and neurodiversity so we are passionate about helping other parents and carers to make sense and feel positive.

Our Training Offer

We offer a variety of CPD accredited training courses.

Block Builders’ Academy
Have you heard of Lego Based Therapy? Block Builders’ Academy Clubs are a fantastic fun way to support children and young people to develop their social communication skills, make friends, learn ways to manage their emotions and develop their thinking skills without even knowing they are taking part in an intervention.

Our online workshops last 1.5 hours and provide you with the skills to set up and run a club in your own setting. You will receive a small Blox kit prior to the event as well as a 100 page resource pack to set you on your way to being a successful Academy Facilitator.

After the workshop, you also benefit from unlimited support via phone, chat or email to help you with any issues you might have.
