Adult Autism Service (Bedfordshire)

Within Bedfordshire and Luton we provide an Adult Autism Service (AAS) for adults aged 18+.

The service provides assessment, treatment and advice for people who are suspected as having an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and require a definite diagnosis, followed by help to access the most appropriate service e.g. health, social care or support group.

The service operates on a multi-disciplinary model of local and community based assessment and diagnosis and works alongside existing Specialist Health Services, Local Authorities, independent and voluntary services.

Blind Children UK

Blind Children UK is the leading charity for children and young people with sight loss.

We help children and their families tackle the challenges of young sight loss so that they can enjoy their childhood and realise their potential as adults.

We believe that no child should feel isolated and afraid or be deprived of a full life just because they can't see. We help children and young adults with sight loss to be all they can be, and to live as independently as possible.

The services we deliver support children and their families, right from birth through to young adulthood. Our aim is to enable the whole family live life to the full, so we also give parents tools they can use to help their children reach educational and recreational goals.

Healthwatch is the consumer champion, for both health and social care services for children and adults living in England. At a local level Healthwatch Bedford Borough (HBB) will:-

• Help and support Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group to make sure that services really are designed to meet the local communities needs.
• Provide authoritative, evidence-based feedback to organisations responsible for commissioning or delivering local health and social care services.
• Be inclusive - we know that people can feel excluded from services and we know that access to services is not always equal. Healthwatch will reflect the diversity of the community it serves.

Preparing for Adulthood

Preparing for Adulthood - Transition (means “change”)
It is what happens when you start thinking about what you want to do when you leave school and what support you may need.
It is a time to look at what you want in life, and plan the services you may need to support you. Planning your transition starts happening when you are about 13 years old. A good transition means that you will be as independent as possible when you are an adult. It is important that you know about what will happen and how all of the different changes will affect you.
