Welcome to the Enfield Advisory Service for Autism EASA
We are a local authority service supporting autistic children and young people from 0 - 25 yrs. We do this by working with educational settings and parents to increase understanding of autism, and develop provision and practice.
EASA comprises the combined outreach services of both the specialist autism schools in Enfield: Russet House (Nursery and Primary) and Durants School (Secondary and Post-16). EASA benefits from the expertise and extensive experience of staff in these specialist autism schools as well as partnering with multidisciplinary autism specialists from across the borough and beyond.
EASA is a strategic partner of the Autism Education Trust (AET) and works closely with them to raise awareness of autism and promote positive attitudes towards autistic people in schools, communities and places of work.
EASA provides a range of evidence-informed training programmes, including all the AET modules. We also give practical advice through workshops and surgeries and provide bespoke support for educational settings and parents. Most of this is free to access for all Enfield school staff and all Enfield parents (part-funded by Enfield’s High Needs Block). We are working hard to provide as many of our services as we can via virtual means or telephone. We will resume face-to-face training and support as soon as the circumstances allow.
