As a mother of a son with autism I have found the National Autism Society (NAS) a absolute goldmine of information, especially when it came to things such as EHCP and education, diagnosis and support with things such as benefits.
I cannot praise them enough, on top of the website I have been able to attend local events and activities and meet other parents who have been through or are going through the same things. This has also been a revelation to me, just to know that we are not alone.
I joined the NAS and I would like to encourage any parents who also have children who are autistic, or any adult who is autistic to do the same, and to support this worthy cause.
