Social Skills Learning Programme

A structured programme of daily social skills workshops

Daily Social Skills Workshops

We run a structured programme of daily social skills workshops to provide opportunities for individuals to develop social skills in a non-pressured and engaging environment.

Autism Specific Individual Learning Programme

Through an Autism specific learning programme, individuals will be supported by highly trained staff to build confidence, increase independence, form relationships and develop practical skills, whilst also having fun.

Individuals are met with frequently to gain feedback, make adjustments to their person-centred support, and to help with progression onto new opportunities.

Member-Led Workshops

We offer a wide variety of different workshops, such as creative arts, drama, money and business, wellbeing and personal development, community engagement, employability, and independent living.

Although the subjects are very different, the workshops are all similar in that individuals are supported according to their individual learning style, to enable individuals to progress towards their personal goals.

Members of the group work together to choose the subjects and topics delivered in the workshops.

“I’ve been visiting other services and this is my favourite one to come to. Lovely space and atmosphere and members can be seen engaging in activities. I wish I could send some of my other clients here.”

“The work Specialist Autism Services does with individuals goes beyond interview skills and application forms, their support is crucial not only for individuals’ employment prospects but for their confidence and general wellbeing.”

Community Participation Activities

Many workshops access the community regularly, allowing individuals to become more comfortable travelling independently, and to provide more opportunities to practise using the skills they have developed in different environments.
