Outward’s Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) outreach team has been Autism Accredited for the last seven years. Our friendly and professional team provide a personalised, flexible and dedicated support service for people with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome living in London, including people with complex and multiple needs. Our staff team are highly trained and have excellent knowledge and understanding of Autism.
We can offer support 24-hours a day, including weekends and holidays. We help people on the autism spectrum and with Asperger’s Syndrome to:
- improve their communication skills, whether they are verbal or non-verbal
- develop strategies to help them better manage their sensory needs
- develop effective coping strategies to reduce and better manage anxiety
- to take small steps to experience success and develop motivation and self-esteem.
Working closely with parents and carers
We provide a range of workshops and training courses to share best practices with parents, carers and professionals. We organise regular, ongoing meetings with parents/carers, send invitations to quarterly events, and produce a monthly newsletter. Our aims are to respond to the needs and views of family members by maintaining regular and ongoing communication.
We are a forward-thinking charity that works across ten London Boroughs to support people to live with dignity and purpose. We work in Bromley, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
Our work is diverse, from supporting people to live independently in their own homes to providing safe, secure accommodation and tailored support when and where it is needed.
