The Adult Autism Service is able to offer a full range of services for Adults with Autism, including specialist Autism Diagnostic Assessment for adults who, for a variety of reasons, may not have been diagnosed as a child, and support to enable adults with autism to live the life they want.
The support we provide for adults with Autism is person-centred and needs-led. Generally, this means that you decide what support you would like from us and you can access it whenever you need it. We work as a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT), which makes it easier for us to work together in providing the support you need. MDT working also means that your initial needs assessment and subsequent reviews within our service involve several people at the same time.
