We are a parent-led group run by volunteers who are mainly parents of autistic children or young people. Our wish is to help others affected by autism (including Asperger syndrome and pathological demand avoidance). Many of our families also have children with a comorbid diagnosis of other conditions such as ADHD, dyslexia and/or sensory processing difficulties.
We organise activities for children and young people on the autism spectrum as well as supporting their parents in the form of an evening support group.
You do not have to have a formal diagnosis to attend our support group as we recognise waiting for a diagnosis is a difficult time. However, children and young people need to have a diagnosis of an ASD or social communication disorder to access our activities.
We offer support over the telephone or by e-mail, however please respect that we are parents of autistic children and young people we volunteer for the branch, so we may take some time to respond to your enquiry.
The branch also takes part in various planning groups in the area to ensure that the needs of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are being considered.
If you require any further information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. or fill in the contact form on the contacts page of our website.
