Advice clinics

We are currently holding clinics via Zoom (a free download) or telephone call.  

Each appointment lasts for up to 45 minutes and our advice is tailored to your individual family circumstances.  We can support you both pre and post diagnosis, and our family support advisors have lived experience.  We are not medical professionals and always suggest you seek medical advice when you raise concerns, however, we pride ourselves in listening to your concerns without any judgement, the chances are, we have also been in your situation!

We can offer you support with (but not limited to):

Child with parent

Q & A sessions

We are delighted to host Q&A sessions from time to time with experts within their field of knowledge.  Parents and professionals are welcome to submit and questions they may have for us to ask anonymously on their behalf.

Please see our previous session with Kieran Rose, The Autistic Advocate on masking.  This is a long video and a lot of information to take in.
