Parents of children on the Autism Spectrum


In this section you can find out about the experience of having a child on the autism spectrum, by listening to people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 45 parents in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as early signs, diagnosis, positive change over time and effect on parents. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
