LEAT is a charitable organisation with 20 years experience of providing high quality support to young people aged 15+ and adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and especially Asperger syndrome.

The support is holistic and person-centred, delivered by experienced support workers, some of whom are also qualified adult tutors/trainers who will help to negotiate an individual support package with Community Mental Health Teams.

The support will be specific to individual need and could include the following:

  • Independent living skills
  • Social and communication skills
  • Anxiety and stress awareness & management
  • Career advice and guidance
  • Benefits advice and guidance
  • Employment support
  • Further education support
  • Advocacy

We also run a weekly social group which meet in Leicester city centre and organise outings to different places of interest in the city and county every 6 to 8 weeks. 

Please contact us for details of our charges whether you want to arrange and pay privately or whether you are funded through a Personal Budget via your local authority or Community Mental Health professional.

We also provide support, advice and guidance to parents and families of people with ASDs.
