- Current situation for Autism Derby -
New ways of working - Information for all families, school and EY setting staff
During these unprecedented times we are all beginning to live our lives differently.
Telephone Consultation Service –
I am planning ways for me to work from a distance and I would like to highlight the “Telephone Consultation Service” that I offer. This is a telephone conversation offering advice and support and can be using a range of media including Zoom, Skype, facetime, or a phone call.
This service is usually charged at £25 per hour but during these times where I know families may need support and advice, or just a friendly chat I am offering this service for free – repeat – I AM OFFERING THIS SERVICE FOR FREE! – I don’t feel I can leave families without support during these times.
However - if you are a family where you are in a financial position to continue to pay then a payment would be appreciated. Schools will continue to be charged £25 per hour.
I am sharing information on my social media pages and, as I find information, I am posting on line (I hope this is helping you all)
Here are ways to contact me or look at the social media pages.

Resource support –
I am able to make visual timetables, choice boards, write social stories,
print, laminate and set up resources for those of you who haven’t got access to the materials or tools needed. The cost for this service wll be on an individual basis.
My current working hours are 9am to 4pm.
Please note Autism Derby is not an Emergency Service and will not be able to help in a crisis or come out to visit at the current time.
I will review this new way of working weekly.
