ESPA and its staff are dedicated to ensuring that all our services are tailored to the individual needs of the people that we support.
We address the complexities of each person’s life by employing a holistic, individualised approach while still engaging with the core issues of autism.
The individual’s that we support and their experience of social and communication difficulties make it essential that our focus is upon the development of trusting relationships in addition to using autism specific approaches. We regard both as crucial to assist with the development of mutual respect and understanding. These are essential for learning, personal development and emotional well-being.
Our services offer flexible, responsive and person-centered approaches provided by staff who have extensive training and skills in supporting individuals with autism.
From a detailed assessment we are able to gain an understanding of the strengths, abilities, needs and future goals of each individual. We devise an individualised plan to effectively support and develop the individual to improve their life skills and quality of life. Close partnership with the person, parents and other key stakeholders enables us to better understand the person and their aspirations and to assist them towards their ambitions though person centered processes.
