Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Moving into a home of your own is an important event in everyone’s life. At AQ we can help autistic adults achieve this life goal.

Autism Queensland supports autistic adults (18-65 years) in South East Queensland to live in a home of their, often with one or two others.

Our experienced, caring and committed lifestyle support workers (LSWs) provide individualised 24-hour support and are trained to provide evidence-informed supports across a range of disabilities, including autism.

They are skilled in developing individual capacity and encourage our residents to engage in the community, explore existing interests and develop new ones; we help them get to work and find and make new friends. We want our residents to enjoy the very best life outcomes and experience enjoyment in their day to day activities.

Talk to us today to learn more about how we can help.
