Are you or a loved one dealing with a diagnosis of autism? You're not alone! It's estimated that 1 in 150 Australians are dealing with an autism diagnosis and it’s on the rise. Autism is more common than we are lead to believe and although it affects how a person perceives – it shouldn't affect their ability to lead a normal, healthy life with the right care and support. Beacon Support is committed to making sure that these values lie at the heart of our care.
Learning about the condition and how to manage it can be challenging. It is a relatively new condition, in terms of Western medicine, thus subject to new scientific discoveries, breakthroughs and research all the time. Beacon Support aims to keep up with as much as this new working knowledge to provide the best care to all of our clients – we're constantly expanding our knowledge alongside you!
The general consensus is autism is a spectrum condition – each individual is on a different scale of the spectrum, which is why it is important to get support that recognises your individuality. It’s a term to describe a range of varying conditions. Being a spectrum condition means that it can be hard to make generalised diagnosis and treatment plans because of the unique way it affects individuals. Beacon Support will assess your individual needs and provide the care that is tailored to your situation.
