At Puzzle Centre we have been using the SCERTS model at our specialist centre, and in our outreach assessment and support service, since 2010. We are now a national demonstration site for the use of SCERTS. If you are looking for a practical framework to provide structures that will help a child with autism in your care, either in a school setting or at home, this course is for you. The Puzzle Team can demonstrate how you too can successfully integrate the SCERTS model to provide a programme for supporting children and their families that focuses on meaningful progress within everyday routines at home, school and the community.
