An update from our friends in Kent, relating to the research behind Autism and Enablement

We are pleased to inform that our social care research on an ASC Enablement has been fully accepted now by the Health Research Authority. You can read more about the research here.


The enablement and reablement programme are very much now a core offer of Local Authorities for most client groups; and are promoted in the Care Act (2014).

Autistic adults have never previously been offered such an approach but a specialist approach is now researched good practice and commissioner of health and social care should be considering similar offers to Kent. Kent’s unique approach and the significant benefits of the approach – particularly to the individual themselves,  can be found within the JKP book Autism and Enablement (Bushell, Gasson, Vann 2018).
