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.
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.
