Help for parents of children with ASD

We have published a resource pack for local parents and carers of children with ASD (autism spectrum disorders).

It sets out contact details for key local and national organisations with a guide to all the different services provided by the council and the local NHS. There are sections on diet, after school activities, respite care and family support. It also explains different teaching practices and includes a book list for further reading.

Additional information on ASD is also available from:
