About us

Children and young people are referred into our service when they are suspected of having autism. We’ll help to identify the difficulties children and young people referred to us face and work with them and their families and carers to ease those difficulties.

You can refer a child or young person to us by using the Single Point of Access and making a Request for Service once you’ve met our request criteria.
