ASD Carers’ Support Group
This is a support group for parents and carers of children with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASDs) – this can include Autism, Asperger Syndrome and other related conditions. The group meets at our Sevenoaks centre on Mondays from 10am to 11.30am.
The initiative for the group has come from our very successful Mums’ Support Groups. ASDs are not uncommon – there are over half a million people in the UK with an ASD, so when you include families that’s around 2 million people whose lives are affected in some way. The period leading up to and after a diagnosis can be a very challenging, bewildering and emotional time for parents and carers. Mums from our support groups who have been through this experience have recognised the need locally for a mutual support group for others in a similar situation. The ASD Carers’ Support Group offers a relaxed, friendly and confidential place to share your experiences and feelings with carers and parents who have had similar experiences.
You can learn more about the groups from this leaflet.
