Located in Gordon Street, The Autism Hub offers a lifespan of support to autistic people, families, and carers. The hub is home to AIM and The Toby Henderson Trust.
AIM South Tyneside is a pre and post-diagnostic service for autistic adults* (who do not have a learning disability) and live in South Tyneside.
The Connect, Support, Prevent Service consists of:
Our psychoeducational course ‘Me, Myself & Autism’ supports autistic adults to have a greater understanding of their autism and what it means to them. The MMA course can only be accessed post-diagnosis.
Low-Level Preventative Support to assist with communication and promote self-advocacy. We offer:
Practical support with things autistic people finds difficult, communication and self-advocacy, to teach new skills and increased confidence.
Emotional support to listen to and validate autistic experience.
Autism Annual Health Checks - Autistic Adults and Young People aged 14 and over, are now eligible for an NHS annual health check.
Autism In Mind can support you to access your health check. We have a dedicated health link worker, Thomas, who works alongside clinicians to ensure that your health check is accessible and meaningful to you.
