Young Adult Transition Service
Our Young Adult Project supports our children aged 14 years and over to support their move out of Perth Autism Support services and into adult services and support the challenges and triumphs this may bring
Our Young Adults have access to a weekly social group to develop their peer friendships to carry them on to the next stage of their lives and our Young Adult Co-ordinator works with each family to develop an individual plan to support the young people in a people centred approach. Individual support can be given in the following areas:
Work placement opportunities
This support can be completely tailored to the needs of each young person to develop their skills, confidence and self esteem,
Young people can still continue to access the general activities service along with the Young Adults Project.
Our Employment Support project supports S4/5/6 pupils in all ten secondary schools across Perth & Kinross to source and be supported in suitable work experience opportunities, including training for employers and support to make "autism friendly" adjustments where required to the workplace. Working in partnership with Perth & Kinross Council we look to develop work experience opportunities to long term work planning through our Autism Modern Apprenticeship Scheme and working with our colleagues in other employability organisations.
