Parent & Carers Together
Social communication and autism parent/carer support groups and courses
Does your child have a new diagnosis of autism? Do you need someone to talk to?
Make an appointment with a children’s centre autism champion. These sessions will give you an opportunity to talk to someone about your child’s diagnosis, your thoughts and feelings and where you might go for further support and help.
