What do disability support workers do for people on the autism spectrum?

Disability support workers play a valuable role in providing services to those on the autism spectrum. Not only do they help individuals on the spectrum with basic needs such as shopping, meal preparation, and physical care, but they also play an essential role in developing skills that allow individuals to further explore their interests. In addition, support workers help those on the spectrum cultivate personal relationships and enhance their independence while navigating obstacles they face in daily life. Disability support workers may also be involved in leisure activities, skill-building exercises, emotional support, and structured interventions for those on the autism spectrum. Ultimately, the support provided by disability support workers helps empower those on the autism spectrum to live a fulfilling life filled with connection and persistence, despite whatever challenges they may face.
