Supporting people with autism spectrum conditions
We believe that supporting people with autism spectrum conditions is not just about accommodating a person’s disabilities but making the most of their abilities. We will never underestimate an individual’s ability, and our teams will be patient and supportive, with a focus on helping them achieve their potential.
Working closely with the individual, their families and other professionals, we have a complete focus on achieving a positive outcome. We encourage the people we support to take part in meaningful activities and work with us to achieve our shared goals. We help people get involved in community activities, develop life skills, maintain friendships and gain access to employment and educational opportunities.
Our expert support…
Our expert support teams understand the challenges people face on a daily basis and will provide opportunities to progress regardless of how complex their needs are. We do appreciate however that no two people on the autistic spectrum are the same. Each person is unique and has their own way of doing things.
This is why we spend time getting to know each individual person – we get to know what motivates them, what could trigger anxiety, confusion or frustration. We try to be clear, direct and concise with our information and instructions. If verbal instructions don’t seem to be working, we’re flexible in our approach and use visual and written forms of communication instead.
Our specialist autism spectrum services can be provided in an individual’s own home, in supported living accommodation and in residential or day services.
