Autism: how can a care plan support you?

Autism is a developmental disorder which affects 700,000 people across the UK. If you have been diagnosed with autism, you may be feeling worried.

Autism can vary from person to person, and you may face a range of difficulties.

Having a care plan can help you feel supported knowing that you’ll always have someone on hand to help when you need them.

Challenges: Social communication and interaction

Autism comes with many challenges, which can include difficulty in terms of social interactions, such as making eye contact, interpreting social cues, or understanding social norms.

Communication can also be affected, with some people struggling with verbal communication and others struggling with non-verbal communication, such as facial expressions and body language.

Repetitive behaviours or routines may also be present, such as hand flapping or lining up objects in a specific way. You may also find you have increased anxiety.

How can a care plan help?

If you have autism, a care plan can be a helpful way to manage your daily worries. A personalised approach to care can help you with your everyday routine, strategies for managing sensory issues, and communication.

A care plan can help to provide the support that you need to manage your autism and enable you to reach your full potential.
