About Autism at Kingwood

Autism at Kingwood helps autistic people and people with Asperger syndrome to live the lives they choose. We make sure we learn what matters to the people we support, and what they want to do with their lives and then we help them make this happen. Our philosophy is simple – we believe that autistic people and people with Asperger Syndrome can, like all of us, continue to develop and grow, make choices and be valued, and be active and contributing members of the community. That’s why our services are tailored to meet individual needs and are built around supporting people to live enjoyable, purposeful lives with a greater degree of independence in their own homes, within the communities in which they live.

The people we support and their families are at the heart of everything we do. In addition to assisting with the development of skills necessary for day-to-day living, our dedicated team of professionals encourage people to become involved in a broad range of interests according to their individual preferences, including the opportunity to work.

We aim to realise as much potential as possible and always ask the question, “where is the evidence that this is the right thing to do?”. Where no evidence exists we are committed to a programme of research to discover what’s right. The result of over two decades of experience in this field of work is that autistic people and individuals with Asperger’s can enjoy a quality of life their families may previously not have thought possible. Our research will hopefully make this easier to achieve.

Progress is made one step at a time and by working in partnership with families it’s our goal to meet the needs and aspirations of individuals, whilst understanding their anxieties and developing ways to minimise the challenges they face.
