AS Mentoring

As it says on our website, AS Mentoring was launched in 2013 by a small team who had spent several years working together as core staff of Prospects, the National Autistic Society’s specialist employment service. Over the years our team has continued to grow, allowing us to meet the increasing demand for ASM's specialist coaching and mentoring. There is a real shortage of specialist support available for adults with autism at the Asperger end of the spectrum, and we’ve consistently added to our range of services in response to particular requests from Aspies and their families. We still have an overall focus on employment, but this is as a means to an end rather than an end in itself. The goal is social inclusion, is to enable each person to achieve their potential. It’s a great job to have: we get to spend our time working with a wide range of interesting and committed people, and we rarely have to waste time on small talk.
