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 a person’s individual ability, and our staff will be patient and supportive and focus on helping them achieve their potential.
Working closely with the individual, their families and other professionals, we have a strong 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 that people face on a daily basis, and will provide opportunities regardless of how complex their needs are. We do appreciate however, that no two people on the autism 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 – what motivates them, what could cause anxiety, confusion or frustration. We try to be clear, direct and concise with 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.
