Ways support workers can assist?

Community Integration: Our support workers help people with autism be part of their communities. They can help them find community resources, do fun activities, join clubs or groups, and make friends.

Sensory Regulation: People with autism sometimes have problems with their senses or how they process sensory information. Our support workers are trained to help with sensory issues and create an environment that is comfortable for individuals with sensory sensitivities. They can also give sensory breaks and teach techniques for self-regulation.

Communication Support: People with autism often have trouble communicating. Our support workers know about different ways to help them, like using pictures, written stories, or special devices, so they can express themselves and understand others.

Social Skills Development: Our Support workers can help people with autism learn how to be social. They teach them how to behave in a social way, play with others, and understand social rules.

Other ways our psychologist can help with autim are:

  • We use a test called ADOS-2 to help diagnose Autism. This helps us find out if someone has Autism or not.

  • We also use a test called Vineland-3 to see how well someone can do different things in their daily life. This helps us understand their strengths and weaknesses in doing these things.

  • We work with parents and care team members to understand the client's needs and provide collaborative care. The care team may include the GP, Pediatrician, Support Coordinator, and Support Workers.

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can assist people in understanding and dealing with anxiety, emotional instability, and other behavioral problems.

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) helps people learn how to control their emotions, handle stressful situations, be more present in the moment, and communicate better with others. This therapy is meant to enhance the overall enjoyment of life.

  • Social skills training helps people get better at talking, interacting with others, and understanding how to react in social situations.
