ASD Parent & Carer Information Pack

What is Autism? Where to turn next?

During the time of assessment and diagnosis of autism it can be difficult to know what questions to ask and where to go for answers

  • For further information on Autism Spectrum Disorder;
  • Signposting to both local and national support services;
  • Register you on the co‐ordinator’s local mailing list to keep in touch with what’s going on in your local area, or;
  • To speak to someone about the information pack… Please Contact…
