These exciting opportunities will be to join a well-established team supporting children and young people with communication and autism needs between the ages of 3-25 in mainstream and resource base provision.

We work closely with families and partner agencies to support children and young people with autism to achieve their potential in schools and colleges, both academically and socially, ensuring their opportunities are as broad as possible on transition to adulthood.
