The service supports young people with a learning disability
and/or autism spectrum disorder who are challenging their school
placement to such an extent that it is at risk.
The young person attends Sycamore for a period of time where
jointly, staff will access the child's needs and plan and implement
strategies which will lead to reintegration back into their school
or an alternative setting.
What we can offer
- intensive support during out of school hours based in the
service and out in the community.
- support is focussed around the individual needs of each child
or young person and is aimed at helping them develop life
skills and become more independent.
The Sycamore service is delivered in partnership with the City
of Edinburgh Council.
