ASAP provides services for people of all ages with Autism Spectrum Disorders living in Pender, New Hanover and Brunswick Counties. Our goal is to help these special individuals gain skills and become more independent. Autism Support and Programs (ASAP) is accepting referrals for CAP recipients. Current services:
- Home and Community Support – is a service intended to meet the habilitation and support needs of individuals living in their own home or family home. This service provides instruction and assistance to enable the individual to acquire and maintain skills that will allow him/her to function with greater independence in the community.
- Personal Care – includes support, supervision and engaging participation with eating, bathing, dressing, personal hygiene and other activities of daily living.
- Respite – is a service that provides periodic relief for the family or primary caregiver as detailed in the Person Centered Plan.
- Crisis Services – is a more intensive level of intervention that provides close supervision to the participant on an individual basis and assists during periods of time in which the person is presenting episodes of unmanageable and/or inappropriate behaviors that require specialized staff intervention. Crisis services provide one additional staff support person for supervision for the CAP-MR/DD waiver recipient, as needed during an acute crisis situation so that the recipient can continue to participate in his/her daily routine and/or residential setting without interruption.
- Day Supports – provides assistance with acquisition, retention, or improvement in self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills, which takes place in a non-residential setting, separate from the home or facility in which the individual resides.
- Individualized Caregiver Training and Education – provides training and counseling services for the individual and families of individuals served through waiver.
