Empowering People, Launching lives
Post-19 is an educational service for adults with autism aged 19-25. The service focuses on developing student’s functional communication and language acquisition as well as preparing them 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. There are now over 17 students accessing the service and in November 2019 we opened our second Hub in Wandsworth.
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.
