THE National Autistic Society (NAS) is holding a free one-day programme in Northwich on Monday, November 24, to help those living with autism.
The help! one-day programme is for parents and carers of young children aged three-12 who have been diagnosed with autism in the last 18 months. Parents of children with an earlier diagnosis can also apply.
It provides gives an introduction to autism and the difficult issues families can face, including everyday communication, education, rights, benefits and legislation. It also offers practical strategies that parents can use to support their child.
Andrew Powell, NAS support programmes co-ordinator, said: “After receiving a diagnosis, parents and carers can feel very alone and the NAS help! programme exists to increase their knowledge and understanding of this difficult lifelong condition.”
The event takes place from 9.30am-2.45pm at Northwich Memorial Hall.
