Adult Autism Service

Supporting adults throughout their autism diagnosis

The Adult Autism Service provides support for people aged 16+ who display autistic traits and experience significant difficulty interacting with the community and accessing local services.

Particular priority is given to those who are isolated.

The service includes:

Support with Diagnosis

Helping people to understand their condition and support to identify the ways Asperger’s affects day-to-day life

Community outreach

Our outreach and support in the local community helps people to overcome anxiety and sensory hypersensitivity / hyposensitivity. We also provide practical training on how to manage every-day activities such as travel and supermarkets.

Accessing local services

It can be difficult for people with autism to access local services, and our team provide support with this.

Emotional support

Through regular 1-2-1 talking therapy and mindfulness sessions we can provide support in managing emotions.
