Our Aim

The One Stop Shop Aberdeen’s primary goal is to provide good quality information about autism. We do this in a variety of ways; 1:1 support for local families and individuals, training, webinars which are open to anyone anywhere, our online Information Hub, consulting, hosting Autistic Pride events and autism acceptance campaigns and more. All our front facing staff are autistic ourselves and we all have a huge variety in both lived and professional experience, some of us are parents, some are not.

We know that receiving a diagnosis of autism for yourself or a loved one can be daunting, but we also know that autistic people are amazingly unique individuals capable of growth just like everyone else. 

We also know the language to describe autism has traditionally been less than positive, and our motto here is that we are reframing the narrative around autism. 

Being autistic brings both challenges and strengths. Our team of autistic autism professionals are here to help others work out fact from fiction, develop strategies to make life more manageable, and to help both accept and embrace autistic identity.


Services

Our services are open to all autistic people regardless of whether they have a diagnosis or not. We also support parents, carers, friends and professionals who are supporting autistic people and their families. No matter how long ago you, your loved one or your client received their diagnosis, our service is available. The following are the various different ways in which we provide support:

The Autism Information Hub is written by our autistic autism professionals and offers insight into what it is like to be autistic, strategies to support yourself as an autistic person, and information about how you can support autistic people around you to grow and develop. Visit the hub here: Autism Information Hub

We are delivering a series of training webinars to improve understanding and acceptance of autism. These aim to share support strategies and provide good quality information to autistic people, families, professionals, and the general public. We also deliver bespoke training to organisations who support autistic people

We provide pre and post diagnostic support in areas including; understanding autism, education, sensory input, communication, coping with crises, Covid-19, employment, diagnosis and much more. We deliver 1:1 appointments, resources, information and sign posting services.
