It is estimated that approximately 1 in 100 people are living on the Autism spectrum in the UK. With World Autism Awareness Week running from 29 March – 4 April this year, we can’t think of a better time to highlight the comprehensive and specialised package of support on offer to ICE members and their families through our partnership with the National Autistic Society (NAS).
Our relationship with NAS covers a wide range of services, including pre- and post‑diagnosis support, so if you suspect that you or your family may be affected by Autism, get in touch.
Support can take a range of forms including:
- Telephone advice for those seeking a diagnosis
- 10 year membership of the NAS
- Education advice
- Publications grant
- Peer support, including parent to parent and local support
- Transitions support
If you’d like to read about just what a difference our partnership with NAS has made, take a look at Anna and Eric’s stories.
