The Shine Team is a service which supports children in mainstream school settings who have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We work with both boys and girls aged between 4 and 18. We are a school service offering training to staff or specific work with pupils. This may be in the form of 1:1 work with a student or running small groups e.g. to support social skills or transition years. We also lead class talks to help the class understand why people are different.
