How we support Children and Young People
EASA supports children and young people in the following ways:
Understanding a diagnosis of autism
- All About Me. Our Educational Psychologists can support school staff to work through the ‘All About Me’ programme with a child or young person, helping them learn about their own autism in a positive and constructive way. If school staff are unable to do the programme with their pupil/student, the child or young person can register for this programme directly with EASA and attend sessions with their parent or carer.
- Autism for children and young people. We can deliver assemblies or class sessions to help children and young people in schools develop autism awareness and learn how to support their autistic classmates.
- Narrative Therapy. A way to think through life issues, discuss concerns, find coping strategies and celebrate strengths and successes. These sessions are led by trained staff.
- Abridged PEERS programme. Group sessions aimed at helping children and young people to develop interaction and friendship skills. These sessions are led by Educational Psychologists.
- Online Siblings Group. This support group is aimed at older primary and secondary-aged children and is hosted by Educational Psychologists.
