Local Support Services
Whether at home or on holiday, knowing where your local autism support services are can be a lifeline to many as well as being a great place to go for support or advice.
Most of the support groups also have social media pages too and they can be a source of additional support and a place of understanding where you can talk about any difficulties, success stories, gain advice or simply feel understood by other parents and carers that have been through the same or similar experiences.
The list below is by no means exhaustive and we are always adding more as we come across them.
