Abbots Lea is a school for boys and girls aged 5 to 19 with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). A small number have emotional and behavioural needs associated with autism and a very small number have additional needs such as visual or hearing impairments. A therapeutic service, including speech and language therapy, art and music has been established to meet pupils needs. The school has developed an outreach service and extensive training opportunities for colleagues in health, education and social services, and for parents. As part of the Excellence in Liverpool initiative a learning mentor has been appointed to provide additional support for individuals and also a co-ordinator to promote enrichment of the curriculum. The school has been awarded 'Investors in People'. It is currently registered on the Autism Accreditation Programme. Volunteers may be accepted to work with the pupils.
