CAOT work with parents and carers and their child or young person with a diagnosis of autism aged 0 to 13 years. They provide help to understand a child’s autism; supporting and empowering to provide strategies where needed and increase social opportunities.
CAOT provide home visits to help parents and carers with advice and strategies within the home, help with new skills to support their child or young person and help with access to other suitable resources.
They also provide activities for children and young people with autism that would otherwise be inaccessible for many families without support and advice. These include clubs for families and activities during every school holiday.
All schools, childcare and SEND providers must make their policy and provision for children with
Special Educational Needs (SEN) available on their website. This is usually published in the
provider's SEN information report. This link takes you to where you can find this provider's
SEN information report.
If you cannot find what you are looking for or you have questions about the provider's SEN
provision, you should contact the provider directly.
We usually hold some information about a provider's policy and provision and you can find what
we do hold here.
This service is for children or young persons with a diagnosis of autism aged 0 to 13 years.
To access support from the CAOT team your child must have a confirmed diagnosis of Autism.
