Support for Families Affected by Autism
When your child receives a diagnosis of autism, it can be difficult to come to terms with. You may be coping with a condition you know very little about, and trying to find new ways for everyone to live together and feel supported.
Try to remember that your child is the same person they have always been. The only difference is that you now know what condition they have and you can begin to help them to maximise their potential and to live life to the fullest.
We have compiled a list of organisations which we hope can help families coming to terms with an autism diagnosis. Some guidance as to what to do next, help you may be entitled to, places to go for support and to meet others in similar situations.
