About Us

Hello and welcome,


We’re Sarah and Dave, a social worker/counsellor and teacher respectively and part of a neurodivergent family.

Through Pathways, we offer a range of services and support for autistic children/teenagers, their families and for professionals.


Pathways is neuro-affirming. We recognise autism as a neurotype not a disorder. We encourage autistic children to be their authentic autistic selves; to play and communicate as they feel comfortable, to learn in the ways which suit them, to understand and be supported with their sensory processing differences and to express their needs so they can be accommodated for.


Pathways is realistic in acknowledging the challenges which autistic children and their families can face, whilst also suggesting positive ways through them.


Pathways combines autistic lived experience with professional experience.
