Tailor Ed Foundation is a small charity, based in Edinburgh who have been supporting families raising children with autism since 2009.
We are excited about launching a new Early Years Service for families with a child with a diagnosis of autism, living in The City of Edinburgh. We accept referrals for children entering their preschool year from parents and professionals. We have a capacity to work with 35 families annually and will be open each year to referrals from May to July. Our services are offered free of charge.
What is it?
Our Early Years Service provides 12 months of support to families to teach their child the most essential skills they need in day to day life. We focus on communication, daily living skills such as toileting, and “learning to learn” skills such as listening to instructions and play skills.
We would appreciate you sharing this news with any families that you think would be eligible and with your wider parent network. Our criteria for this service are that the child should be entering into their preschool year in August 2018 and have a diagnosis of autism.
For more information and a referral form please email Fran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime families raising children with autism can access all of our social supports such as soft play, dining sessions, ad hoc events, coffee mornings and dads’ nights. Full details of these services can be found on our website at www.tailoredfoundation.co.uk.
