24-hour support

We can offer support 24-hours a day, including weekends and holidays.

We help people on the autism spectrum and with Asperger’s Syndrome to:

  • improve their communication skills, whether they are verbal or non-verbal
  • develop strategies to help them better manage their sensory needs
  • develop effective coping strategies to reduce and better manage anxiety
  • to take small steps to experience success and develop motivation and self-esteem.

Working closely with parents and carers

We provide a range of workshops and training courses to share best practices with parents, carers and professionals. We organise regular, ongoing meetings with parents/carers, send invitations to quarterly events, and produce a monthly newsletter.

Our aims are to respond to the needs and views of family members by maintaining regular and ongoing communication.
