How Dimensions Support People With Autism & Learning Disabilities
We support people who have a wide range of learning disabilities and autism to live the life they choose, gain increased independence and achieve their goals and ambitions. People like Jane, Karen, Barbara and Elliott. And Maggie & Doreen.
We are experts in communicating with those who find it hard to be heard. Furthermore, we listen to what people and their families tell us. Not only that, but we successfully support people with even the most complex needs and ‘challenging’ (generally distressed) histories to be part of their community, enabling them to have greater choice and control, and to live an ordinary life.
We always base our personalised support on the specific needs, choices and ambitions of the individual, following our principles of person-centred thinking, Active Support and Positive Behaviour Support.
Other Support Available for People with Autism & Learning Disabilities

Telling your friends and family that are close to you that you have autism and help them to understand how to support you.

There are many online social media groups where people with autism share their experiences and offer support to others that you can join. A great place to start is the groups run by autism charities.
