Understanding your child's diagnosis

The resource was commissioned on response to a high volume (approximately 500 emails) of correspondence from parents and guardians following assessment and diagnosis. This publication is the second of a three-part series of supports for the autism community between the two organisations and is available in hardcopy or online. Building on the first publication “Starting the Autism Journey” this new resource aims to equip parents and guardians with the support needed to assist them as they begin their post-diagnosis journey with their autistic child.
