Challenge Consultancy and Training Ltd specialise in providing consultancy to all who work within the complex area of providing health care and support for individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
Consultancy ranges from supporting individuals and their families within their home environment to function and manage their day to day lives; to consulting for companies to manage specialist packages of care and complex cases.
Children with ASD at Home, Education or in Care
Challenge Consultancy and Training Ltd provide the opportunity for families and professionals to come together and be advised on the best practice in caring for a child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Consultancy can be informal, offering the family and individual support and guidance during difficult periods or it can take the part of a formal strategy meeting and future plan bringing the individual into the forefront.
Consultancy services within the specialist area of Autistic Spectrum Disorder are valuable to enable a young person with complex needs to function within a further education environment. By offering a specialist service the establishment can work proactively and confidently with an otherwise complex and challenging group of individuals and help them to succeed.
Challenge Consultancy and Training Ltd provide direct and flexible consultancy and support to all public services operating within the criminal justice system that find themselves managing cases involving individuals with ASD. We do this by:
- Liaising with the individual with ASD whilst they are in custody and advising on appropriate interview technique to resolve the immediate detention where possible.
- Advising on the case of an individual with ASD and associated complex needs by consulting with the Custody Officer and risk managing to lessen anxiety within a restricted environment.
- Consulting with probation and forensic services to offer advice on how to best manage an individual with ASD, complex needs and potentially dual diagnosis safely within the community. Developing risk management plans for multi disciplinary teams to work towards to enable best practice.
Challenge offers consultancy services for health and social care organisations who specialise in Autistic Spectrum Disorder and associated complex needs. The consultancy package can operate flexibly to meet the needs of the service.
Consultancy can be provided to a service to offer ongoing support and expertise in the area of ASD and complex needs. This allows the service to operate proactively when managing individuals with specialist requirements and changeable behaviours. Structured programmes are developed to allow for changes to take place safely and for the service to grow and establish in this specialist area.
Challenge Consultancy and Training Ltd also offers the opportunity for companies to develop expansion plans, considering the current gaps in the market and the demand for specialist services. Where to make contacts and what type of service to offer is the key to a successful business, considering the financial constraints on commissioners and best value initiatives.
