Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In line with Government advice, EASA is suspending all face-to-face group events (e.g. training, workshops, drop-ins and coffee mornings) at the current time. We are continuing to offer telephone and email support for school staff and parents. We can also support staff and parents by video link. We are working together with colleagues in Special Schools and the Local Authority to plan support and provision for autistic children and young people, their families and those working with them during this period of national school closures. We are developing Home Learning resources which you can access in the Useful Links and Resources section of this website. Please check this website regularly as information may change. Please call or email for details.
