ESPA employs a diverse Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) all of whom are highly skilled and experienced autism specialist clinicians. The team provide direct support to individuals and work with staff teams to ensure we consistently provide each person with holistic person-centered support.
The MDT work across College, Residential, Day and Domiciliary services. However in day and domiciliary services it does not replace local community health and clinical teams who remain the responsible professionals. In this situations our MDT can work in partnership with them and offer, if required, their professional expertise in autism.
