Early Intervention Service Team at Western Trust Staff Awards – Winners of the Improvement, Innovation and Involvement Award 2023

There is a clear evidence base highlighting that early identification and intervention leads to better outcomes for children, young people and families.

It is with this in mind the Early Intervention Service within the Children and Young People’s Autism Service is the crucial first step on the Autism Pathway within the Western Trust.

We want to meet with families right at the beginning of their journey and together with them find the best support and intervention for them.  Families are invited to attend a welcome, introductory session as soon as they are accepted to the waiting list. This session is referred to as Tier 1.

What does Early Intervention look like?

Early Intervention sessions can be accessed throughout the child’s/young person’s journey to assessment.

Tier 1 

Tier 1 provides families with information on their journey through the Western Trust Children’s and Young People’s Autism Service


  • To increase understanding of Autism and neurodiversity,
  • Help parents and carers see things from their child/ Young person’s perspective
  • Advise parents of further more specialised Tier 2 interventions & other supports available to them at this time
