Surrey Autism Outreach Service

Surrey Autism Outreach Service is available free of charge to all mainstream secondary schools, Academies and specialist provisions in Surrey.  We aim to help schools understand and meet the needs of their autistic students.

Surrey Autism Outreach Service is happy to visit independent schools and schools outside of Surrey on a charged basis, details available on request.

Students who are referred to the Surrey Autism Outreach Service do not need to have a diagnosis of autism but should show traits of autism and/or have social communication difficulties.

What do we offer?

  • Classroom observations and meetings with students
  • General autism training for staff including autism aware approaches and strategies
  • Training specifically about autistic girls
  • Meetings with parents/carers and external agencies including parent coffee mornings
  • E-mail and telephone advice for staff in schools
  • A comprehensive report following an Outreach visit that will include resources and suggested strategies

How do you make a referral?

  • School to complete a referral form (on the website) and email to the Outreach Team.
  • Parents can request a visit from Outreach via their child’s school.

We look forward to hearing from you.
