Objectives

Established in 2001, we are specialists in early intervention education for young children with autism and communication difficulties.  We empower and upskill their families, so they feel confident in supporting and advocating for their child’s needs, and we provide training to teachers and practitioners across the UK to help broaden the understanding of autism.

 

We do this through our Circle Centre Nursery; our Outreach work 1:1 with children at home and in other settings; our training courses for parents, carers, practitioners, local authorities and schools, along with consultancy; and our Parent Support Groups. Each child has a bespoke, specialist education plan, which is delivered by our professional team of speech and occupational therapists, and 1:1 Learning Assistant support. Historically, 100% of our children leave us with greater ability in the following:

 

  • Communicating verbally and non-verbally
  • Regulating their emotions
  • Confidence to interact with others and to engage in the world around them

 

Our ultimate objective is to prepare every child to progress onto the next stage of their education, with the confidence to take part in and enjoy the learning activities – and for their families to feel able and empowered to support their child, and advocate for them and their needs when necessary.
