AIM Sunderland is a post-diagnostic service* for autistic adults (who do not have a learning disability) and live in Sunderland.
*Please see our referral forms (above) for referral criteria.
Our psychoeducational course ‘Me, Myself & Autism’ supports autistic adults to have a greater understanding of their autism and what it means to them.
The course runs for 11 weeks.
At the end of the course we hold a Me. Myself & Autism for Families session where relatives/friends can come along for an overview of the course content.
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.
Speech and Language (SALT) – individuals who complete the Me, Myself & Autism course will be offered the opportunity to access a SALT assessment after which a report will be produced.
