Gowrie Care

Autism Services

Gowrie Care support many people on the autism spectrum across the cognitive ability range – that is to say that some people on the spectrum may also have a learning disability while other people on the spectrum do not.

Autism impacts on an individual’s social communication, social interaction and social imagination/ flexible thinking and they may also have sensory and information processing difficulties – all of these issues combine to make many everyday tasks confusing and sometimes frightening.

As well as supporting individuals in their own tenancies, Gowrie Care has two specific autism accredited services:

Gowrie Student Support – providing assistance getting to, and personal, emotional and practical support whilst attending Dundee College or Abertay University

Crieff – small group home for three people with autism and learning disabilities
