We value individuals with autism, enabling and supporting them to live fulfilling, active lives.
Spectrum has a good record of working with children and adults who have complex and challenging needs. We aim to ensure the individuals in our care do not suffer placement breakdowns and the associated distress.
Service users are encouraged to access the community, lead meaningful lives and be valued, participating members of society.
We specialise in being able to create environments on an individual basis that minimise the impact of autism. This is in line with the latest CQC guidelines and best practice.
Our in-house behavioural support team is led by a clinical psychologist and a behavioural expert, both with many years’ experience of autism and associated behaviours. This ensures prompt and appropriate responses to any changes in behaviour that need immediate attention. It also lessens the need for external (and often delayed) input from professionals and social services.
Many autistic people have complex communication issues which we aim to overcome as far as possible. This leads to people being able to improve their communication and social skills to a level where they can get more enjoyment from friendships, relationships, sharing interests and participating in activities with others.
