Following a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) or Social Communication Disorder, we offer a tailored treatment programme and interventions.

Based on the NICE Guideline (2016, CG142) recommendations structured and supportive psychosocial interventions include the following core components:

  1. Psycho-education: Patient and/or parent/partner are helped to learn about how difficulties and strengths manifests, physiological, behavioural and psychological impact on functioning and the basics of the differences in brain structure and functioning in ASD/AS.
  2. Psychosocial Interventions focussed on lifestyle, adaptive, and social skills management: Patient and/or parent/partner are taken through the spectrum of interventions to implement in lifestyle, adaptive functioning and social skills including improving communication style which enhances the quality of life. This would also address channelling the tendency to focus on specific and repetitive interests.
  3. Psychosocial interventions focussed on increasing coping skills (emotions and stress): Patient and/or parent/partner are introduced to a variety of interventions that help in learning about emotions in self and others and managing these using a rational-emotional model. Anger, anxiety and stress management are key areas of focus.
  4. Management of thinking and cognitive patterns: Patient and/or parent/partner are introduced to a variety of interventions that help in building cognitive flexibility, central coherence and addressing any other cognitive distortions through a CBT model.
