SAVING MONEY FOR LOCAL AUTHORITIES
The Autism Education Trust (AET) can help your local authority reduce the demand for specialist autism services and help you decrease the proportion of local authority spend on specialist services by upskilling staff and leaders in mainstream settings and enable them to support autistic children and young people.
On average a specialist education placement costs £67K/per year per child or young person. The AET can support your local authority to meet the needs of all the autistic children and young people across your local authority by implementing the AET programme (total average cost is £15K/per year). Data measuring the impact of the AET programme provides evidence that the AET programme prevents exclusions, reduces demand for specialist services and saves money.
If you would like the AET to visit your local authority to discuss how we can help you meet your specific local challenges please click the “Request a call back” button at the bottom of this page or contact:
