At Crossroads Together, we understand that adults and children with autism may have difficulty reading subtle social cues or understanding day-to-day social encounters.
Many people with autism want to be sociable, but have difficulty with initiating and sustaining social relationships which can make them very anxious and can lead to isolation and loneliness.
For children and young people with autism, difficulties in communication and making friends can lead to bullying and poor achievement at school. We offer support for Children across Cheshire East to help improve their social skills and communication in a one-to-one and group setting.
For adults, it can mean difficulties in forming lasting relationships, maintaining employment and managing budgeting and other housing related skills. For adults with Asperger’s living in Cheshire West, we are currently offering online well-being coaching and support sessions.
Well-being Coaching and Support
For those with Asperger’s, the lack of social interaction and integration within society over the last 12 months has unfortunately taken a negative toll on people’s mental health. Many are experiencing higher levels of anxiety and worries about the future. We are currently offering mental health and well-being coaching sessions for adults with Asperger’s Syndrome.
There will be the opportunity to take part in a tailored virtual social group with others who share the same feelings of anxiety, to allow individuals to socialise and feel supported within a group environment, whilst also keeping safe at home.
In addition, there will be a one-to-one weekday virtual support and coaching session with our Senior Support Worker Becky who will facilitate and practice techniques to reduce anxiety levels.
The benefits of these service are not only to improve social skills, confidence and independence of those attending, but also prepare individuals for life outside of the pandemic.
