What We Do
Who we support
Alderwood LLA predominately specialises in providing care for individuals with a diagnosis of Autism, behaviour difficulties that challenge services and are most often considered to have complex needs.
At Alderwood LLA we firmly believe that all individuals have the ability to learn and develop helping them to live a more independent and fulfilling life. This is our aim for those we support.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism is a ‘spectrum disorder’, meaning the severity of impairment varies greatly between individuals. Whilst some people experiencing Autism may enjoy a similar level of independence to those without the condition, others are profoundly affected, necessitating lifelong care and support.
Alderwood LLA aims to offer a range of unique experiences for our individuals and the Alderwood Projects have become a quintessential part of everyday life for us.
Our Visual Communication
The Visual Communication Department is an integral and vital part of the Alderwood LLA ethos.
All our service users require a level of non-verbal communication to help them be able to live fulfilling lives. The vast range of material produced in the Department assists with everyday tasks (managing hygiene), coping with potential stressful situations (hospital appointments) and progressing with their Adult Development Programme.
