We are a blended team of peer support practitioners (autistic individuals and/or expert family members) and clinicians including nurses, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists. We pride ourselves in having a neurodiverse workforce, with many of our team being neurodiverse (dyslexic, dyspraxia, ADHD or autistic) or have lived experienced with a family member.
Using our blended skills and specialism we offer a range of assessments, supporting, mentoring and coaching to autistic people and their support networks, using a holistic approach.
Our team also offer training, webinars, workshops and we also hold annual conferences.
Using our blended experiences our training gives unique insight, while also having knowledge of the most up to date evidence based practice.
Our diagnostic assessments involve a detailed family and developmental history and observational assessment of the individual.
Your assessment is carried out by a minimum of two team members that work alongside our Peer Support Practitioners who provide invaluable support to the individual and/or their support network through the process.
All our assessments are completed in line with NICE guidelines.
