Support for people with Autism

At Bracknell Forest, we have a specialist team that supports people with a primary or single diagnosis of Autism. 

This team sits within the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities

Who we support

Adults who have been diagnosed with Autism and their carers who are resident in the Bracknell Forest area may be eligible for support.

We will carry out an assessment of both individuals and carers wherever they have needs, regardless of whether they are expected to be eligible for support from the council.

The support we provide covers a wide range of needs and includes:

  • a carer assessment and support plan
  • person-centred planning
  • community integration into mainstream services
  • support with the housing process
  • communication skills support
  • new skills development
  • preparing for adulthood - visit our SEND Information Hub for information about preparing for adulthood
