PLEASE NOTE - Autonomy Plus side of Shropshire Autonomy is still open and able to take requests as long as they can be acted upon virtually via the internet or a phone call.
It is often helpful to receive advice from a person who understands Asperger’s syndrome from a personal perspective, especially if you think you may have autism or have recently been diagnosed. AutonomyPlus+ can provide 1-1 or small group mentoring and also support from people with Asperger’s syndrome for an hourly rate. Asperger’s specific coaching can also be offered from a specialist worker. (* Fees available on request.)
My brother, 42, has recently been diagnosed with Asperger. At the news, my family and I felt lost as much as he did. We didn't know what do and how to move forward. We didn't know anyone with Asperger or who knew anyone with this condition. With a little bit of research we found Sara and arranged a mentoring session. Sara was very flexible in terms of times and means - she even offered to visit my brother at his place, which was an option we considered at first as he was suffering from depression and didn't want to leave the house. In the end we arranged a Skype session and found it very useful. Now we have someone to turn to for advice when needed, and someone who can help us exploring the options available. My brother felt understood after so many years of confusion and misunderstandings. We immediately arranged for another session. Thank you Sara."
