DSPL 4 launches autism support service

Square 1 Support is a new service just launched in DSPL 4, to help professionals working with autistic pupils aged 3-12 years access support and advice in developing positive autism practice.

The service covers the DSPL 4 areas of Hoddesdon, Broxbourne, Cheshunt, West Cheshunt and is designed to help meet emerging needs of autistic young people. It aims to prevent escalation of needs by supporting early identification.  Square 1 Support staff have detailed knowledge and experience of working with children and young people aged 3-12 with autism, social, emotional and communication needs and co-morbid diagnosis.

There are three levels of support available:

Level 1: Telephone or email support—Phone lines staffed for two afternoons a week alongside a call-back service
