Autism

We understand that each child, young person or adult with autism that we support is unique.
An Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a child, young person or adult communicates and relates to both people and the world around them. The term ‘spectrum’ is used because although there are three main areas of difficulty that affect all people with autism – social communication, social interaction and social imagination - the condition varies significantly between individuals.
Our skilled staff start from building an understanding of each person’s specific pattern of strengths and needs, using Person Centred Approaches to help them achieve their wishes and goals. We work closely with families to plan for the future and ensure each person we support is able to live a life that makes sense to them.
We recognise that transition is one of the most difficult times for a young person with autism, so we offer extensive support for transition into school and residential placements and for the next steps as the young person makes the step into adult life.
