Due to the continuing spread of COVID-19 across the globe, a variety of measures have been enforced by the government to help prevent the transmission of the Coronavirus. Because of this, all group-based activities at Specialist Autism Services have been suspended until further notice.
In light of the recent developments, Specialist Autism Services will continue to provide autism specific support using methods that adhere to the government restrictions.
We are continuing to monitor the situation and liaise with the relevant councils in order to adapt our service and provide the best possible support during these difficult and uncertain times.
Our continuing support
Many of the workshops we provide at Specialist Autism Services will continue to run in new adapted formats; utilising group video calls, conference calls and other creative methods to ensure we are still providing autism specific support that adheres to the government restrictions.
Using a variety of accessible methods, we will ensure that all our members will receive daily wellbeing checks from familiar staff. Our members will be able to contact us at any time during work hours using their preferred methods of contact.
Interactive Online Workshops
During the COVID-19 restrictions we will be hosting a variety of interactive online workshops, to replace our usual group-based workshops at Specialist Autism Services. The workshops will be run remotely, by our staff and facilitators, using video conferencing software.
With vital feedback from our members, we will continue to adapt our online workshops and working practises to ensure that everyone is receiving the best support possible during the COVID-19 restrictions.
