Understanding Autism Aims

Everyone with an Autistic Spectrum Condition is unique. As highlighted in the new Government Guidelines ‘Think Autism: Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives... April 2014’, it is essential that Care and Support Services work together to give careful consideration to each person’s particular needs, strengths, talents and wishes. Support should be person centred and timely.

Working this way will enable them to live fulfilling and rewarding lives within a society that accepts and understands them.
