A Word From Alex



Whether you are a parent, a professional or someone who wishes to support our work as a charity through a donation or by fundraising, I would like to welcome you to Puzzle. I hope that our website will provide you with all the information you need about our specialist nursery, training and outreach services, but please do contact us directly if you have any questions about any aspect of our work.

At the Puzzle Centre, we lead the way, by setting high standards of early education therapy and support for young children disadvantaged by autism or similar communication disorders. Our successful delivery of pioneering early intervention is both at a local level and nationally, through the dissemination of good practice.

We have been providing high quality, specialised early intervention for young children on the autism spectrum (ASD), or with other communication disorders, since 2001. We have developed considerable expertise in using the SCERTS model (www.scerts.com) to help and support our children and families as well as a range of other evidence-based educational techniques and approaches.

Our Patron since 2006 is Rt Hon John Bercow MP, Speaker of the House of Commons who is a long standing supporter of the Puzzle Centre.

Anna Kennedy OBE joined us in April 2014, as our first Early Autism Ambassador to highlight and give her support to Puzzle Centre’s mission to provide high quality early intervention, education, therapy and support for very young children with autism.
