Specialist Support Service
Our Specialist Support Service is a comprehensive, professional, high-quality Positive Behaviour Support provision for parents and carers of children and young people with Autism and related conditions who demonstrate challenging behaviour**
Our approach combines functional assessments which enables us to understand different behaviours and tailor a strategy for their skills development.
As a full cost service, a specialist support package can be commissioned by county council, CAMHS, education or privately funded i.e. direct payments, PIP, DLA etc. Anyone can make a referral. Following receipt of a referral it may be necessary for an eligibility assessment.
A child/young person must:
• Be under 25 years of age
• Demonstrate traits of Autism and/or ADHD
• Live in Sussex or Kent
• Funding available
Referrals can come from a parent/carer or a professional involved with the child or young person. Following receipt of a referral, it may be necessary for someone to carry out a provisional needs assessment.
Areas we cover – Kent, West Sussex, Brighton & Hove and East Sussex.
** Please note that we are unable to support children/young people who suffer from extreme mental health disorders, such as psychosis, bipolar disorder and clinical depression.
