Lambeth Autism Advisory Service

Article Image

We are a team of specialist teachers who offer support, advice and training to children, families and professionals in Lambeth. We are trained in interventions such as TEACCH, PECS, SCERTS, Social Stories and other ASC friendly strategies.

We work across all mainstream educational settings and aim to deliver advice and support to schools enabling you to meet the additional educational needs of children and young people with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC).

We support schools in developing a greater understanding of ASC, empowering you to apply good practice by continuing your development through creating an inclusive and autism friendly learning environment.

We work collaboratively with parents, carers, professionals and outside agencies to provide a holistic and personalised approach to each child and young person.  Through this we aim to enable all children and young people to reach their full potential academically and socially whilst promoting independence.

Our Training and events

We run a range of workshops aimed at professionals throughout the school year. These give participants time to explore an area in more depth, learn some specific strategies and reflect on their practice in the classroom. Participants also have to opportunity to network and discuss strategies with fellow attendees.

The workshops are ideal for teachers, support staff and other professionals that are looking for a deeper understanding and practical strategies for the classroom.
