Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Overview

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. Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and how they interact with others. Individual’s with a diagnosis of Autism see, smell, hear and feel the world differently to other people.

Autism is a spectrum condition, therefore individuals will share certain difficulties however it will affect them in different ways. Some individuals with a diagnosis of Autism will also have learning disabilities, mental health issues or other conditions, meaning people need different levels of support.

At Alderwood LLA we firmly believe that with the right support, all individuals have the ability to learn and develop helping them to live a more independent and fulfilling life and this is our aim for those we support.
