Middletown Centre for Autism, partners of Network Autism, have developed an online resource offering information and advice on supporting autistic children and young people to lead independent lives. It aims to empower autistic young people, their families and the professionals who support them.
The resource explores what building capacity means and the importance of collaborative partnerships between the child, their parents and professionals. It outlines a number of strategies that may support the life experiences of autistic children and young people in a number of settings:
- building capacity in a school setting
- strategies for the family and home
- supporting autistic individuals.
It features a number of real-life case studies of the Centre’s work with autistic children and young people on a range of issues such as:
- assessing school placement
- a whole school intervention to build capacity
The resource also includes a number of links and resources for further reading.
You can read the resource here.
