The information on this page is designed for social and health care professionals. The Disabilities Trust's autism services support people with autism to live independent and fulfilled lives. We offer individually tailored support aimed at best meeting the individual needs of service users to achieve their full potential.
Our focus at Hollyrood is to highlight and further support 'ability' where there may be disability. We promote the individual's right to privacy, respect, choice and inclusion and encourage people to express their views and concerns through regular liaison with their families, carers and our multi disciplinary team.
Our detailed autism services assessment is designed by experts to determine the level of support needed by each individual. We use a combination of methods to accurately assess each individual's needs including collating reports from professionals, meeting with the client and their family and talking to previous service providers.
A team then provides a detailed assessment of each individual's autism profile, behaviour and support needs. This informs the needs-driven support plan for the individual's move to one of our Autism services.
