Neurodiversity Celebration Week- The Autism Project

This week we are sharing stories from CareTrade Participants and staff

Today is the turn of The Autism Project Participants to share their thoughts on The Autism Project.

Something about me:
• “I don’t like loud noises and when people are too close their voice sounds
like shouting” Headphones make me feel better.
• “I love looking up routes to my favourite places but too much traffic makes
me unhappy”
• “I like learning new skills in the kitchen at The AHOY Centre – Deptford
(SE8) but the journey is far for me”
• “I like Skill Up functional classes at CareTrade Charitable Trust (6 St
George’s Circus) the class teacher/tutors are beautiful”



  • I liked drum practice  at the end of the class day I like making lots of noise
  • We love skill up because we learnt about body language, different skills and qualities that we need for work, problem solving, communication,  teamwork and making posters on word or PowerPoint.  Sandra and Jessie explain stuff really well and help us if we’re stuck. The lessons are fun and entertaining.
  • We did functional skills with Jack, and we did maths and English and some role play and sometimes a bit of games. Jack and Jessie explain and help if we need it. Functional skills at TAP is much better than being at school and college and it’s even more fun indeed.
  • We get the opportunity to try different work placements and new skills and learn new skills to add onto our CV.
