The ASC Team support children and young people aged 3 – 25 with Autism or Social Communication Difficulties.

They work with the settings that the young people attend providing advice and support to those most closely involved in delivering their educational programmes and can also offer some time limited support to families and carers.

The Team currently support the delivery of Autism Education Trust (AET)  training in the Early Years on Wirral and will extend this to training for schools this academic year.

The ASC Team has 3 core staff- Amanda Roberts, Cathy Dawson and Karen Pinch and is managed by Sue Jamieson Quinn, Senior Educational Psychologist.

Due to COVID-19, the Team office is temporarily closed.  The Team is working remotely and can be contacted by phone or email.
