Priory Autism Pathways

The Priory Group, including Priory Adult Care, work closely with community healthcare professionals and commissioners to provide a stable and safe environment for the service user as part of a seamlessly integrated care pathway, outlined below. This ensures accessible psychological expertise, continuity of care and the delivery of positive and measurable outcomes. The individual may enter and leave the pathway at any point depending on their individual needs.


Priory Education and Children's Services

Our services aim to enable every person to leave education with externally recognised qualifications and provide them with opportunities to achieve their potential and personal success. We offer individually tailored education plans for people with autism and Asperger's syndrome, which are provided in highly structured and predictable environments. These are tailored to the unique needs, sensory profiles and learning abilities of each young person. Successful placements are achieved through flexible packages of education, therapy and care, designed to support each individual.

Acute services

Our hospitals carry out a comprehensive needs assessment, risk formation, in depth diagnostics and recommend the most appropriate treatment. A wide range of psychological therapies are offered to help develop and optimise coping strategies and social skills in a structured environment.

Autism and Asperger’s syndrome services

Both Priory and our adult care services offer tailored therapy treatment, employment and vocational support in a structured care environment designed to enable each service user to develop social, educational and life skills, helping them to progress to a more positive future and successful independent living, where appropriate.

The service user may move back to their community mental health team who referred them, or on to our Priory Adult Care “Supporting You” services.

Priory Adult Care's “Supporting You” services

The services are supported by our team of specialist autism advisors, who aim to empower service users to take control of their lives and progress through our care pathway within the Priory Group, developing their levels of independence and, where appropriate, transfer seamlessly to a supported living model delivered by our domiciliary care agency, “Supporting You”, which is registered with CQC, The Care Inspectorate and CSSIW. This model operates across England, Scotland and Wales and is key to further developing the levels of independence of our service users in their own home.
