NEW DIAGNOSIS
PRACTICAL ADVICE

Arguably the most traumatic time associated with Autism is the initial diagnosis. The period before diagnosis can be extremely stressful as you worry constantly if your child has autism. Most parents would have been on the internet checking for the signs and markers for autism and then comparing their child’s behaviours for similarities. This is useful to a point but to get a confirmed diagnosis of autism you need to get a professional assessment.

  • My son entered the PALS programme in 2012 as a shy and socially awkward 12 year old. The PALS programme gave him the skills he desperately needed to operate in social situations with his peers and classmates and had a hugely positive effect on his life.
