Support ServicesAdult Services (21 and older)

Our team are called upon to support and assist many adults with autism and/or other developmental exceptionalities in a variety of current living arrangements:

  • Independent Living: assisting individuals living in their own apartment or house with little or no regular external support.
  • Supported Living: assisting individuals living in their own apartment or house but requiring regular external support services.
  • Home-based: supporting adults continuing to live with adult support in a home with a family member or caregiver.
  • Residential: supporting adults living in residential facilities and receiving care and support often 24 hours a day.
  • Acute Hospital Care: supporting short term inpatients (with direction from hospital)

In any of the living arrangements listed above, wm+a associates may work with the individual, their family or caregivers, educational staff, and other contributing professional staff in delivering existing individualized programs to help improve daily living skills, social planning, educational goals or other life skills goals. Some individuals will require ongoing training, guidance and support with self-care and self-help activities such as bathing, toileting, grooming, and dressing. During social planning activities, the associates support individuals as active participants in all areas of community life including social and recreational activities. This focus on planning and effective skill building is essential to building relationships enabling individuals to succeed in integrating into the local community and where possible working towards independent living and/or a better quality of life.

wm+a services are completely flexible to accommodate every situation — providing immediate or emergency scheduling and service co-ordination, or long term planned support. In a crisis situation, wm+a associates can provide support and care until an appropriate assessment is completed, continuing if required during initial treatment and working closely with all involved to implement an effective exit plan.
