Outreach builds support individually around each person, recognising that every autistic individual has needs and wishes that are personal to them. Autism East Midlands can offer a wide range of person centred services that meet the specific needs of individuals.
How do Autism East Midlands outreach services work?
Our outreach services provides one to one (or two to one if required) specialist support in the home or community. The service is staffed by specialist support workers who are experienced in supporting autistic individuals, and is co-ordinated from a number of our community based services. Flexible Day Opportunities through outreach operate across day, evening and weekends.
Outreach can be days, evenings and weekends, dependant on the required needs of the individual including:
• Supporting people in their own homes to help them develop their living skills, whether that be with household tasks, understanding letters/bills or life skills.
• Accessing the community, socialising, helping to build confidence
• Individuals can choose activities which they would like to do such as meals out, cinema, bowling, shopping, country walks, days out.
• Building confidence and social skills
