Information for families

Many people’s first experience of autism is through their family. Whether it’s their child, grandchild or sibling, having someone close to you who is autistic is a strong motivator to learn more about autism.

We all want to create a safe and nurturing environment for our family, and being informed about autism and its common characteristics will equip you with the tools to connect with autistic family members in a way which acknowledges their own unique access needs.

Below you will find more detailed advice and information for family members of autistic people.
