BeyondAutism Awarded BBC Children in Need Grant

We are delighted to announce that we have recently been awarded a generous grant from BBC Children in Need towards our Early Years’ service. The grant, worth £109,000, will be spread over the next three years.

These funds will help us to continue reaching young children and their families at a crucial stage in their development. Importantly, this will support the Early Years’ service to remain a free provision for the families that attend.

We are extremely grateful to receive this grant and are excited about the possibilities that come with it.

“Enabling families to feel empowered starts at the earliest moment; this service provides professionally led group sessions that develop the strategies and skills with parents to communicate and play with their child. Confident and skilled parents improve outcomes for children with autism, increasing aspiration and ultimately affecting the decisions they make for their child’s future. This grant has come at a crucial time ensuring that we reach many more families.”

- Tracie Coultas-Pitman (nee Linehan), CEO BeyondAutism

What is our Early Years’ service?

Early Years is a free service developed for parents/carers to attend with their children aged 15 months–5 years. The programme focuses on behaviours, relationships and developmental play, underpinned by ABA. We tailor teaching techniques around the needs and preferences of each child.
