Ailsa Riddel has been at the North East Autism Society since she was 18 years old and lives in one of our Adult Residential Homes in Sunderland. Our person centred approach and adult learning programmes has enabled her to become more confident and independent.
Ross Gordon, aged 27 has been with us since he was 9 years old. He had a lot of behavioural problems as a child but now lives in supported living and is gaining work experience. His mother Eva explains what difference this has made to his life.
We treat everyone as an individual. We carefully assess each and every learner and develop an individual program around them. Jordon Cavanagh accesses our Adult Day Services with his own personal budget.
