Description

The Asperger Specialist Team is part of the Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. We are a multidisciplinary countywide service providing pre and post-diagnostic services for adults in Somerset.

We make an initial assessment to establish each person’s needs.

We offer a range of Post-Diagnostic services; for example, Living with Aspergers educational sessions which are held on a one-to-one or group-work basis.

We are able to signpost you to other external support services and social groups that you can access in the community.
