Initial referrals are generally made via a Local Health Authority or Social Services. We also work with parents who want help with transition for their children to adult services. We use a combination of methods to accurately assess each individual's needs, including collating reports from professionals, having meetings with the service user and their family and talking to previous service providers.

A multi-disciplinary team then provides a detailed assessment of each individual's autism profile, behaviour and support needs. This will then inform the needs-driven support plan for the individual's move to the most appropriate service.

Autism Spectrum Partners provides a range of care and support services to both adults and children with autism. For referrals and further information, please contact:
