Autism Initiatives UK
Autism affects both children and adults alike. Current research suggests that over 1 in 100 people may be on the autism spectrum, including Aspergers syndrome.
Autism Initiatives UK provides a range of person centred services throughout the UK. The charity provides services to children and adults, and encompasses education, residential houses, supported living and outreach services.
The services provided by Autism Initiatives are significantly different from those provided by generic learning disability and mental health services, in that our services are underpinned by a clear understanding of good autism practice and a person centred approach to understanding the unique needs an individual may have in relation to their autism.
The difficulties that many people with autism experience within services are often due to a lack of a clear and consistent understanding of their needs and wants over multiple environments. Often there is also an over focus on ‘behaviour’ from service providers rather than an insightful analysis of the reasons for such behaviour in relation to an individual’s need to experience good autism practice. Autism Initiatives services, with the support of clinicians within its practice support team, are able to deliver support solutions that help individuals to develop strategies in relation to managing the impact of their autism and generate positive outcomes in relation to their needs as an individual.
If you are a person with autism, a family member, or a commissioner of services we are happy to talk to you about the support that we can provide for you.
