SPECIALIST SUPPORT FOR
SERVICE USERS WITH
AUTISM AND CHALLENGING
BEHAVIOURS

We provide a happy and engaging
environment that offers a bespoke provision
specialising in Autism, challenging behaviour
and communication.

The service users are supported by caring,
highly trained staff who work hard to build trusting
relationships. They provide inclusive and
Person Centred support within a safe and
secure environment.

The central location enables the group to
develop their community presence, focusing
on developing the service users access
to and ties with the local community and
businesses. Throughout the week they
are offered choices of community based
activities, such as Wheels for All, swimming,
the library, local shops or trips on public
transport.

Another area the group focuses on
throughout the week is the development of
life skills and personal independence at an
appropriate level. This includes developing
the skills necessary to maintain personal
relationships, including friendships with
peers.

We also work on developing the
skills necessary to maintain their personal
environment and develop their self-help
skills. This involves activities such as identifying
what to cook, the ingredients needed,
shopping for the ingredients, preparing the
food and cleaning up after the activity.
These can often be messy activities, but
the proofs in the pudding, they always want
to eat!

When joining us, we work with families
and key staff from the service users
previous placement to create a personalised
timetable This can include group sessions
with peers and individual 1:1 sessions. This
timetable will be reviewed after 1 month
and then annually via the annual review
process.

It goes without saying that we are
in daily contact with all of our families and
changes to our offer can be continuous to
meet need.
