Puzzle Centre is a charity that promotes and delivers early intervention for young children with autism and other communication difficulties; supports families and practitioners through training and outreach programmes 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.
Puzzle Centre has been providing high quality specialised early intervention for preschool aged children since 2001.
In addition to our Specialist Centre in Buckinghamshire we offer an
Outreach Service to families where attending the Nursery is not possible
(eg you live too far away). Please click here for more information
about this service. Outreach Support for Families
We aim to improve the lives of these children and those around them through research, advocacy, outreach and raising awareness on both a local and national level.
The combined expertise of specialist Teachers and Speech and Language Therapists is used to deliver a communication focused early years curriculum. Our staff are committed to enabling your child to develop their communication, play and interaction in a fun and caring environment. We work very closely with families and with practitioners to ensure the needs of our children are fully addressed.

'Early intervention for young children with autism is crucial and the work going on at the Puzzle Centre is truly fantastic! It is indeed a flagship setting for the under fives and their national training and outreach programmes are in demand. I met with the staff and some of the parents and was encouraged to hear about the impact it has on their children and Puzzle families. I am delighted to be joining this team and look forward to supporting their work.' Anna Kennedy OBE
