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:
Helping people to understand their condition and support to identify the ways Asperger’s affects day-to-day life
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.
It can be difficult for people with autism to access local services, and our team provide support with this.
Through regular 1-2-1 talking therapy and mindfulness sessions we can provide support in managing emotions.
