Post-19 is an educational service for autistic adults aged 19-25. The service focuses on developing functional communication and language acquisition as well as preparing students for adulthood.
In the 2016–17 academic year, we ran a pilot of the Post-19 provision with one student in our Hub in Hammersmith and Fulham. This was incredibly successful and led to us making it a permanent service in 2017.
Through an individualised personal curriculum, our students follow a programme of study that best prepares them for adulthood, focusing on the skills required for independent or supported living, training and employment, health and wellbeing and community participation.
By providing just enough support we are preparing our students for their lives after education and enabling them to have choice and control over where and how they live, what they do and with whom.
