Specialist Area Autism has facilities for all adults with ASD. We offer support for the whole spectrum, from those with developmental impairment and ASD to those functioning well in their own home.
In particular we also deal with the target group of ASD with comorbid conditions, e.g. eating disorders, schizophrenia, OCD, special behaviour-related disorders etc.
Our organization has been created so that we can deal with and support each and every individual’s needs, competences and development opportunities regardless of functional level.
Merger makes us stronger
Specialist Area Autism is a merger between Hinnerup Kollegiet, Gudenåkollegiet and Bækketoften, which took place January 1st 2013.
We believe that the merge makes us a strong and even better organization now working unified instead of working separately.
We have 300 adults with autism who either live in one of our departments or receive help and guidance from us.
A total of 400 employees, work in Specialist Area Autism, e.g. residential social workers, psychologists, physical therapist etc.
