NAS Plus is a new service recently launched by the National Autistic Society in West Lothian for people 16 + who have a diagnosis of autism.

Our aim is to offer 'light touch' support to people who would not typically meet criteria for statutory support but would benefit from a little bit of input to help them to make their own decisions about their next steps.

The kind of work we will be doing includes:

  • Independent travel skills training: For anyone who might be looking to access further or higher education, voluntary or paid employment or activities within their own community but have difficulty travelling independently.
  • Social Skills Training: We will be running a modular social skills program that will focus on a different element of socialising each week.
  • Autism Awareness Sessions: This aims to help individuals come to terms with and better understand their diagnosis of autism and explore what it means for them and their family.
  • Social Groups: Our social groups will be user led and we hope to deliver these across West Lothian. We also hope this will provide and opportunity for the people we work with to practice the skills they have learned in our socio skills training sessions.

Staff from NASplus will be available in Bathgate Partnership Centre every Wednesday afternoon from 12pm - 4pm. Please feel free to come in and find out more about the services on offer.
