At Scottish Autism we acknowledge the specialist support our staff provide to autistic individuals, therefore those doing support work are known as Autism Practitioners. We provide outstanding training and are continuously improving to ensure all our Autism Practitioners are supported and have the skills to deliver a quality service. This post is a good opportunity for those with a generic support worker experience to specialise. 

Scottish Autism are good employers. We really focus on individualised support plans that have the individual’s best interests at heart” staff member, New Struan

New Struan Residences – A residential school placement (52 weeks) for children and young people with autism.

Scottish Autism’s Values are:

· Change Makers – we never stand still, we move positively forward always focussed on quality and being the best
