Autism East Midlands offers a wide range of specialist services which are designed to support people affected by autism throughout their lives.
Our services include a specialist school for children with autism between the ages of 3 and 19 years, which is rated as “outstanding” by OFSTED. We offer services to families affected by autism, access to a play and leisure activity programme for children and young people and to training workshops for parents and professionals. We also provide a number of residential and day services for young people and adults, as well as supported living and outreach services.
Throughout the year we run an extensive programme of specialist training, including basic awareness courses covering autism and Asperger’s syndrome through to highly specialised courses on pathological demand avoidance, executive functioning deficit, sensory awareness and catatonia.
Our Elizabeth Newson Centre in Nottingham specialises in diagnosis and assessment of autism spectrum conditions and is one of only two autism-specific diagnostic and assessment centres in the country.
