Different needs carter for different support. Our service will meet your needs whether you require support on a 1:1 basis, and some people have a mix of 1:1 support during some sessions, and 2:1 or 3:1 support during other sessions.
Gella Care Services is about responding to your needs your way. So don’t be afraid to get in touch – let’s have a chat about what you’re looking for!
When we meet an autistic person, we know that by listening to them and their friends and family, we will increase our understanding of how to support them. This helps us build an Autism Profile with each person. We encourage people to gain self-awareness and increased understanding of their Autism. This enables us to provide the support which makes the most of the gifts and skills their Autism can bring, as well as seeking to reduce the difficulties each person will face.
Our aim is to ensure a real sense of wellbeing and self-worth. We encourage and motivate each person to feel good about themselves. We support people to gain confidence and do the things that are important to them and ultimately to lead happy and fulfilled lives. We ensure that each person has a transition plan which includes pre-visits, personal information booklets, photo’s, maps, timetables, social stories and schedules to ensure everyone feels welcome as well as comfortable
