What if?

Updated: Feb 20

What if you could support autistic people to reach their potential?

What would that mean for you?

Autistic children and adults have unique skills, talents, and strengths.

When you focus on these strengths and provide an inclusive environment which supports their needs, you empower their potential.

Autistic people deserve support and care that's individualised for them.

That’s why it’s so important to have an environment where people on the autism spectrum can be themselves and learn and grow in a way that works best for them.

When supporting autistic people, consider:

  • What are they good at and what interests them? This could be anything from music to math, art to animals. It is important to find out and support these interests.

  • What and who they dislike? (This could be people, places, things, sensory inputs, songs, movies.) Understanding this can help avoid potential triggers for meltdowns or shutdowns.

  • One thing to consider when supporting autistic people is their specific needs. What do they struggle with the most? Physically, emotionally, socially, academically or creatively?

  • It’s also important to think about an autistic person's communication type and style. Some people process information visually, some prefer auditory input, while others learn best through touch and movement.

  • Finally, think about how they learn best. Some people on the autism spectrum love learning new things and have a favourite subject, while others learn better in a hands-on environment.
