Autism Profile

We develop a profile of the way Autism impacts each person. This highlights their strengths as well as the areas where support is needed. Our Autism profile summaries the diagnostic criteria and creates a picture that is both Autism focused and person-centred specific. Through this, we are able to work in a truly person-centred and Autism intelligent way.

Jane’s Profile

Jane knew very little about her Autism diagnosis, together with her key worker, she began to produce a profile of herself and her Autism. For the first time in her life Jane started to understand why she asked the same questions repeatedly. She liked to hear the predictability of the answers. Patterns and predictability are the main ways that Jane makes sense of her life, she wants and needs them. Discovering this was significant for Jane in gaining control over the anxiety she can sometimes experience, if she does not get the same answers.

Jane likes to share her Autism profile with new members of staff to ensure they understand her and her Autism.
