Hi, my name is Sarah. I have worked at Autism Plus for eight years. I work in a small team as a Programme Facilitator, supporting four people who have autism and disabilities.
I have supported Sally since I started. Sally has autism and Rett syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects brain development - she is unable to speak or sign, so right from the beginning I knew that I would need to do my very best to get to know Sally, to understand her needs and how best I could help her live her life as independently as possible.
There really is something special about my job: to have the privilege of making a real difference in someone’s life and helping that person to live their life the way they want to, it doesn’t get much better than that.
“It was extremely helpful having Autism Plus workplace assessment to help us in working with an individual diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, giving us a better insight of the syndrome so we could offer more appropriate support. The assessor was knowledgeable, understanding of the circumstances from a business perspective and really tried having a full overview of the situation. The report came back to us within the promised time frame and full of recommendations on how to best accommodate the individual needs, which was really thorough and supportive.”Enquire Now
