The Mayor of London promotes a range of awards and accreditations which include the needs of children in London who are on the autistic spectrum.

This includes the Mayor’s Healthy Schools London Awards. In order to achieve these awards, schools must have systems to identify and meet the needs of vulnerable children and young people and provide appropriate and relevant support. This includes provision for pupils on the autistic spectrum.

Childcare settings working to achieve The Healthy Early Years Bronze and Silver Awards are also required to demonstrate their support for disabled children and those with complex needs including young children on the autistic spectrum.
