A Place for Therapy
Petra’s Place is a wide-ranging therapy centre for children with autism and other co-occurring conditions. We use state of the art, scientific evidence-based approaches to help children with autism manage their anxiety, sensory and other issues to be happy and fulfil their potential.
A Place for Growth
We provide interventions and support that can make a real difference, before a child starts school. The aim is to help children become school-ready. All activities at Petra’s Place are overseen, approved by child development and medical experts and evaluated by researchers at the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University.
Our Funding Model
Whilst the therapy centre is set up and funded by the Petra Ecclestone Foundation our aim is for the majority of children at Petra’s Place to be referred and funded by their local authorities in the different London boroughs. We also accept a percentage of children at Petra’s Place paying privately. This model will allow the Foundation to set up further centres. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and indicate if you are local authority or privately funded.

A Message from Our Founder
As a mother I know how important it is to have a happy child – it’s what I want for my own children and all children everywhere. I created Petra’s Place because I saw how little provision there was in London to help young children with autism who would benefit from early intervention, and I saw friends in America whose children got so much more support.
Every child, no matter what their learning challenges are, has the right to have the best intervention so they can fulfil their potential. Toddlerhood and early childhood are critical years for later development and it is just wrong to deprive children of the opportunities to grow and blossom.
My dream is to create a place that offers a range of fun, valuable evidence-based interventions for pre-school children with autism, all under one roof.
I created Petra’s Place to help families get the early support they need to grow and thrive and to help make the world a happier place for children with autism and their families.
