The Phoenix Outreach Service supports teachers and staff working with students in Tower Hamlets who have a diagnosis of ASD, and attend a mainstream school.  This support can take the form of school visits, observations and feedback to staff, running training for school staff and attending planning meetings.  We also facilitate regular groups for parents and carers of children with autism, dates for these are below.  If you have any questions about our service or any of the information on this website, please contact us at cmcnerney@phoenix.towerhamlets.sch.uk

Parents can bring a friend or relative along too.

Parent Support Group Information

Higher Functioning Autism and Asperger’s Support Group
This group meets once a month at the Montefiore Centre in Whitechapel for parents of school-age children with an ASD who are asking their parents questions about why they are different. Come along to link up with other parents, share ideas and get support. The group is held the first Tuesday of every month at 1pm.

If you would like help or advice about starting up a parent support group in your child’s school, please let us know.
