Adult autistic son being moved from supported housing
My 36 year old Asperger son has lived in NAS supported housing near to family for 12 years. Previously he lived in residential for one year but was moved by social services for financial saving. Has struggled to cope over years developing increasingly severe anxiety treated with medications and cbt. Two years ago a severe reaction to medication changes resulted in him being unable to leave the house ever since. Now NAS are saying they 'cannot meet his needs' so asked social services to find a new placement. SS won't pay for residential place which he clearly needs and is near family. What can we do?
