We understand that living with an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) including Asperger Syndrome can make everyday life challenging and this difficulty can vary dramatically between individuals. This is why we have developed a wide range of innovative autism services which meets the needs of all the people we support and ensures a better quality of life.

Our aim is to develop the skills of the people we support to help them make sense of the world around them and through person-centred care plans, encouraged to achieve their goals and aspirations. For some people, this means attending college to access various courses, for others, it could be work placements and other day opportunities in-line with their goals.

Our specialist autism services

From the safe, structured and homely environments to a staff team with significant experience and expertise, each of our person-centred services are specifically designed to support people with autism. The specialist services we provide include:

  • Specialist residential options
  • Supported living and community outreach transition services
  • Innovative support programmes in safe and caring environments
  • Access to education and employment opportunities
  • Progression through a care pathway that fulfils each individual’s maximum potential
Our unique approach to autism

We always involve people in deciding how they are supported, as we know that everyone diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder has their own individual abilities and preferences. Some individuals for example, may have difficulties with social interaction, whereas others may have impaired language and communication skills.

To help us to better understand a person’s interests, strengths, ability, and their needs, we will always work with individual to understand how best to support them. This makes it easier for staff to understand the nuances in an individual’s condition and to identify cognitive abilities that may require focus.

 

It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a child with autism to raise the consciousness of the village.
