Emma is an example of one of the adults that you may support:
My name is Emma, and I live in a shared house with 3 of my good friends. We all get along and I love the times we share (although sometimes we do disagree!) I have autism and I really do struggle if my routine is not kept simple and structured. When I am on my own, I can get agitated and upset, this can lead me to make a loud humming noise. I have a Support Worker called Lisa, who is a massive help to me! Without her I would always be late for college, I would not be able to have a nice warm breakfast, and I would forget to take my medication. Also, I would not be able to get out in the community swimming twice a week which is what I love! Lisa is there for me when I am sad or worried, she talks to me and explains things in a clearer way, so I can process what is happening. Without her I would not be able to have independence in my own home, which is what life is all about - isn’t it?
