An Autism Service client says...
I came to the Tuke Centre during a very low period of my life. I had struggled throughout school, struggled with University (dropping out twice), and struggled with employment. Depression, anxiety, and zero self worth meant I was at a crisis point. I didn’t understand why I felt so different to my peers, and why my behaviour and actions generated distrust and disapproval from colleagues and friends.
The Tuke Centre was a life changer for me. I had not considered that I might simply be wired differently to everyone else. The Specialist Autism Service were well equipped to support me through a diagnosis and the subsequent implications. The kind and gentle understanding from the staff alleviated all my concerns, questions, and fears. It is rare to have such a good service on York’s doorstep.
I was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome (high functioning autism). My mannerisms, the ticks and peculiarities, and even the way I think could all be explained. My problems in social life, in school, and in work were given a much needed context. I felt validated and I now had the self-awareness to try and change my life.
My formal diagnosis has helped me to come to terms with my past, and gave me the knowledge to work towards a better future. I have gone from a bleakness in life, to stability and a valued contributor to society. Thank you to all at The Tuke Centre, for opening my eyes on what a positive experience being diagnosed can be.
