Cumbria Autism Family Support Project

This is a programme for families of school age children with a diagnosis of autism:

The ‘What Now?’ programme runs over three months and involves parents in a weekly commitment to a two-hour group session. Two parents or carers may attend. The aims of the programme are:

• To help parents develop an understanding of their child’s autism and how they see the world.
• To bring parents together to explore common difficulties and reduce isolation
• To provide support and information about autism
• To share tips and strategies in managing behaviour
