The North Wales IAS was involved in assessing SK, and then offering post diagnostic support to help with managing anxiety and accessing employment. The support included creating communication aids, working on strategies to managing anxiety, as well as supporting the individual’s partner to help implement the strategies provided.
Both the individual and their partner are now in employment. SK is using a structured timetable and is also managing their anxiety using the strategies provided. Communication aids and social skill strategies are also put in place to support SK within the workplace. SK is now working as a receptionist, which is a real accomplishment given that communication was one of the targeted support areas.
