Additional Information

Autism NI is Northern Ireland's autism charity. It exists to support autistic individuals and their families and campaigns to raise awareness of autism within the wider society.

The Autism NI Early Intervention Team provide critical, community-based support to autistic children and their parents/carers. Each delivers a community focused bespoke service for children and families who have received an autism diagnosis. The service is flexible in its approach enhancing social networks and bridging families to the supports they need. We will provide family members with practical tools and support to manage their children's behaviours, play and socialisation. Each session will last approximately one to two hours and topics may include: The use of visual structure to help a child understand, structuring the home environment, setting up and maintaining positive routines, daily living skills/play skills and organisation skills, for example, homework schedules etc.

Autism NI continues to be an advocate of partnerships and recognises the strength of working together in order to turn the curve on outcomes for autistic children and their families.

Our early intervention supports are available in the Belfast, Northern, South Eastern and Western Health & Social Care Trusts.
