ASD/LD

Autism Spectrum Disorders and Learning Disabilities

Our ASD/LD practitioners are able to provide assessments of children and young people with autistic spectrum disorder and / or a learning difficulty, as well as common associated mental health problems. 

We offer individually tailored therapeutic programmes based on research evidence and the preferences of the child / young person and their family. Such programmes might include adapted cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), independence focused interventions (e.g. around food preparation), and techniques for managing challenging behaviour. We can also offer emotional support, advice and signposting for parents / carers and siblings.

We can offer an individually designed programme of:

  • Individual or group sessions
  • Child-centred and independence focused therapeutic interventions
    Adapted Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychoeducation
  • Behaviour management
  • Support for parents / carers and siblings

We work in conjunction with the school, family and young person to ensure they are receiving the right level of support for their needs. Weekly sessions are held at their school, in a safe confidential environment.
