Autistic Adults and Community Based Services
Many Autistic Adults need the services of a PCA (Personal Care Attendant), Homemaker, Independent Living Skills Workers, Personal Support Staff and more. These services are to help Autistic Adults get support needs to live independently in their homes to help them with their daily needs. Getting these services is increasingly difficult because of lengthy application processes, case managers who are not properly trained to work with Autistic Adults, and agencies that lack compassionate understanding of autism. Sara Swan the founder of Looking Forward Life Coaching will join me to talk about community services and the conditions of them, to hopefully get some insights into how we can advocate for ourselves and others who need those services.
