Autism Initiatives' Approach - Understanding, Communication, Expectation, Motivation & Sensory Perception

Autism Initiatives provides services to children and adults, and encompasses education, residential houses, supported living and outreach services.

The services provided by Autism Initiatives are significantly different from those provided by generic learning disability and mental health services in that our services are underpinned by a clear understanding of good autism practice, and a person centred approach to understanding the unique needs an individual may have in relation to their autism.

The difficulties that many people with autism experience within services are often due to a lack of a clear and consistent understanding of their needs and wants over multiple environments. There is also often an over focus on ‘behaviour’ from service providers rather than an insightful analysis of the reasons for such behaviour in relation to an individual’s need to experience good autism practice.  Our approach to the delivery of services is best understood by our 5 Point Star.
