Autism Outreach Teachers

Autism Outreach is provided jointly by The Holbrook Centre for Autism and by Peak School at Chinley. Two full-time equivalent teachers are based at each special school and offer a range of services in order to promote the inclusion of pupils with autism in mainstream settings. Services include observation of pupils and provision of advice to staff, including recommending strategies, materials and books. We can attend Annual Reviews and other relevant meetings, and liaise with parents and with other professionals involved with the pupil. We also provide training to schools via INSET days, staff meetings and through the DAIS programme.
