Bristol Autism Spectrum Service

Bristol Autism Spectrum Service BASS Autism Services for Adults provide a service to adults with autism spectrum conditions (ASCs) and professionals and carers who support them. What we do: Assess and diagnose people who are referred to us by their GP. Support colleagues in mental health services to assess and diagnose. Social support assessments to people who have been diagnosed by our team. Advice service with groups on mindfulness, managing anxiety, social cognition and interaction, as well as an opportunity to book one to one sessions with our staff (see details below). Post-diagnostic support - psycho-education, coping strategies and signposting. Training in Asperger syndrome and ASCs ranging from one hour awareness sessions to a full day's training. We are a small team and therefore do not have capacity to carry a caseload or do direct 1:1 support. We currently accept referrals for people within Bristol, North Somerset, BANES and South Gloucestershire. We run advice services for adults with autism diagnoses in Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. Bristol autism advice service runs every Friday from 12.30 - 4.30pm at the Create Centre, Spike Island. It is open to people with autism spectrum conditions who live in the area. BaNES autism advice service runs every Wednesday afternoon from 1.00 - 5.00pm at the Percy Community Centre, Bath. North Somerset autism advice service runs every second Wednesday of the month, from 12.30 - 4.30pm at 1in4, Weston-super-Mare.
