Our Autism Unit
Here at Flag we have a small Autistic Unit that accommodates ten young people.
There is currently no cure for ASD. However, a wide range of treatments, including specialist education and behavioural programmes, can help improve symptoms.
What is autism?
Autism is different for everyone
Autism is a spectrum. This means everybody with autism is different.
Some autistic people need little or no support. Others may need help from a parent or carer every day.
To find out more take a look at the NHS website for further information or contact us here at FLAG GRIMSBY.
What we do at Flag Grimsby
Autism and Asperger syndrome are both part of a range of related developmental disorders known as autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). They begin in childhood and last through adulthood.
ASD can cause a wide range of symptoms, which are grouped into three categories: problems and difficulties with social interaction – including lack of understanding and awareness of other people’s emotions and feelings impaired language and communication skills – including delayed language development and an inability to start conversations or take part in them properly unusual patterns of thought and physical behaviour – including making repetitive physical movements, such as hand tapping or twisting (the child develops set routines of behaviour and can get upset if the routines are broken)
