If your child has recently been diagnosed with Autism it can be a very uncertain time. Many parents are given a diagnosis without any guidance on what to do next. You may be wondering what effect the diagnosis will have on your family, and how you can best support your child.
This booklet tells you more about the support and benefits you may be entitled to, sources of local support such as parent groups, and how the National Autistic Society (NAS) can help you.
Getting a diagnosis of autism - or an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) - can be a really positive thing. A lot of people say their diagnosis has helped them to understand why they have difficulties with some things and why they are especially good at some things.
Having a diagnosis also means you can get easier access to support and benefits. This guide tells you more about the support you can get, the benefits you may be entitled to, and how The National Autistic society (NAS) can help you. It also includes a section about support for parents and carers. Find out more about how a diagnosis can benefit you at www.autism.org.uk/diagnosisinfo .
