Education, support and research for early years autism


Puzzle Centre Charity

The Puzzle Centre charity promotes and delivers early intervention for very young children with autism or similar communication difficulties; provides training and outreach to families and practitioners throughout the UK.

Our mission is to ensure that every preschool aged child with autism, or similar communication needs, is offered prompt, appropriate and high quality education, therapy and support.

In addition to our Specialist Nursery in Buckinghamshire we offer an Outreach Support Service to families across the UK, when attending the nursery is not possible.



Early Intervention

The term Early Intervention is used to refer to a wide range of different approaches and programmes which aim to foster and enhance development in very young children. At Puzzle we use an innovative educational model for working with children with ASD and their families called SCERTS. It targets the most significant challenges faced by children with ASD and their families and is accomplished through families-professional partnerships, family-centred care.
