As this pilot service is virtual, while we will make every effort to accommodate preferences during the video call, it won’t work if the young person themselves feels unable to access virtual meetings, so please only apply if your young person is relatively comfortable with virtual services and will be happy to speak/type during sessions.
The mentor programme has been specifically designed by an autistic autism specialist teacher and will focus on pertinent themes such as mental health, it will also be personalised according to the mentee’s circumstances and their age. The mentor process will ensure mentees gain an appreciation of their own unique strengths and will be better able to self-advocate. Through the service we aim to save and change lives creating healthy dignified futures for young autistic girls.
Before applying please check that your child is eligible on the criteria above and read our Admissions Policy along with our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.
