Identifying and supporting children and young people with autism

Posted on behalf of IASP

Identifying and supporting children and young people with autism

Training content/aim of training

Increasing numbers of children and young people (CYP) with autism (particularly those without identified learning disabilities) are reaching crisis point in local mainstream and specialist schools.

This has resulted in increasing numbers of exclusions, off-rolling, school refusal and home education, as well as out of area placements. Consequently, these CYP become isolated and can develop mental health issues, or these can worsen (e.g. depression, anxiety, eating disorders). This group of children and young people are at higher risk of inpatient admission to mental health hospital settings.

Recent NHSE Transforming Care data has shown that:

  • The number of children in ATUs has doubled

  • 65% of young people (under 18 years of age) have autism but no learning disability, and

  • 55% of young people living in inpatient units (<18) are female.

Devised and delivered by an autism consultant and NHSE expert by experience, this training aims to address the following objectives:

  • To understand the needs of this group of children and young people

  • To understand what is going wrong for this group of children and young people, and some of the risks and pathways that can lead to crisis and admission to institutional care

  • To equip IASS to support and advise children and young people with autism and their families appropriately

  • To ensure IASS services and others understand the range of measures that could support children and young people with autism (or autism and learning disability) who might be at risk of potential admission to mental health settings

Who can attend?

Priority will be given to IASS staff but there will also be places for local authority and health professionals.


All delegates are required to complete the evaluation form before leaving the event.

World Cancer Day Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre fundraising Spnaish evening

Posted on behalf of

Marking World Cancer Day on February 5th we are holding a fundraising event for The Olive Tree, the only cancer support centre in Crawley.

1 in 2 people in the UK will be affected by cancer at sometime in our lives and The Olive Tree is an independent cancer support centre on the grounds of Crawley Hospital offering an ever expanding range of complementory treatments and support following a diagnosis.

The Olive Tree raises all its own funds and we'd like to invite all to an evening hearing more about the charity, what we offer, the range of volunteer opportunities available there, and to enjoy some delicious Spanish food at Hisplais! 

Cost is £20 for a three course meal. 

This can be brought at either Hisplais or The Olive Tree or by contacting the Olive Tree fundraising manager Alyson 


We look forward to a great evening enjoying some delicious food, raising awareness of the work of the Olive Tree and hopefully helping with our fundraising!

Any queries please do get in touch. 

This event is also advertised on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
