Gheel Autism offers a day programme to our adults in residential care and to others who are transported to and from their homes daily. Their ages range between 18 and 59 years. Programmed activities are individually planned providing a consistent, caring and compassionate environment. The day programme focus on the following areas: communication, arts & crafts, physical exercise, sensory awareness, horticulture, contract work, cookery & domestic skills, social community participation, recreational programme and personal time.
We offer the TEACCH approach in order to develop structure in the lives of our service users. The principles of this approach are individual tuition and adaptation of the environment using individual programmes based on regular assessment.
