Hello there

I have joined this forum as my youngest son has autism with a developmental delay. He goes to a special school and is progressing well. The right support is vital as he gets older so that he can be the best he can be

Hi, welcome to the forum!

There are other families posting on here who have children and adults with ASC.

Please feel free to look at the information in the Directory and to post questions and comments.

We hope that you will find it useful at what must feel like a very daunting time with a recent diagnosis.

You may also find it useful to look at the LDOX Facebook page and also the SENDIASS Facebook page for parents who have children with disabilities and additional needs.Oxfordshire Family Support Network also have a Face Book page with regular updates.

There are lots of Facebook groups and groups running activities and support for children and adults and this is a good starting point.

Have you been in touch with Autism Family Support in Oxfordshire now that you have a diagnosis? They are a lifeline to many local families with the information they can give you.
