NAS Education Rights Service 0808 800 4102

The NAS Education Rights Service provides impartial, confidential information, advice and support on education rights and entitlements for parents and carers of pre-school and school-age children with autism to help them get the educational support their child needs.

Sutton Autism Spectrum Advice Service aims to develop the expertise and awareness of schools and other educational settings so that they can provide an environment in which children and young people with autism can progress and thrive.  

The Service develops the capacity of schools and educational settings in a number of ways

  • Observation, consultation and an Intervention Plan which is then evaluated by school and returned. This may trigger further support and advice  

  • Providing training  for whole staff or surgeries to small groups of staff as part of Continuing Professional Development ( CPD )

  • Offering teacher observations and support with planning a differentiated curriculum

  • Parent Programmes (see Parent Training and Info)

If you feel your child needs extra support in their educational setting please speak to your school SENCo about getting a referral to the ASD Service or contact them for a chat on 0208 770 6618.
