Parent Support Group

The monthly support groups for parents/carers of children and adults with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder is a great way to access information and meet with other parents in an informal and friendly setting.

Our staff are also on hand to offer advice and information either in the group setting or where needed on a one-to-one basis.
