Meet Chris

For Chris, it’s been hard to leave the house, socialise, and eat meals. With Elite Smart, he’s overcoming these challenges and growing more independent.

How Elite Smart Helped Chris
Come Out of His Shell

At 19 years old, Chris has a bright future ahead of him. His past, however, has had many challenges. 


Chris is autistic and non-verbal and for a long time, he didn’t feel comfortable going outside his home. When he would go to school, he wouldn’t smile or socialise or eat. Sometimes, Chris would only stay at school for an hour and a half before needing to come home. 


His family knew that Chris needed professional support to reach his full potential. Which is why our team at Elite Smart was here to help. 


When living with a disability, every day is different. That’s why you need flexible and customised care to keep up with your changing needs. At Elite Smart, that’s what we do best. We understand that no two people are the same. That’s why we tailor our approach to meet you where you’re at and take you where you want to go.

“I have found that the Elite Smart staff are very flexible and helpful. They cater to my son’s individual needs. They go above and beyond to support Chris,” says Chris’ mother.


In his time with Elite Smart, Chris’ progress has been amazing. He enrolled in our community day programs and stays for the whole sessions, which last three and a half hours! Not only does he stay, but he interacts with support staff and other members. He now eats without any problems. Best of all, you’ll always find a smile on his face. 


We’ve helped Chris find his joy and his independence. We can’t wait to see where he goes next.
