At Embrace we believe in delivering a quality service. We work in quite specialist areas we know it is important to have our own expertise in the form or an Autism Advisor who can offer guidance and support, as well as ensuring the implementation of our autism strategy. Our Autism Advisor leads our Autism Strategy, is involved in staff training and works with staff teams and individuals who need that very specialist input.

If Speech Therapy is required, liaison with the relevant Health Authority will be undertaken.

Therapy sessions are available for pupils as recommended by the relevant authority.
