You'll find plenty of information for parents and carers on our website, including more about autismAsperger syndrome, and diagnosis

Much of the information in our Living with autism section is aimed at parents and is full of practical advice, ideas and further contacts.

If you'd like to talk to someone, we have an online community which is open to parents and carers as well as our confidential Parent to Parent telephone service. And, with 100 local branches currently running, you should be able to find other people you can make contact with in your area. 

Major subjects of interest


You may also find the information written for professionals useful. Contact A Family have produced a guide for parents of disabled children about going back to work.

Our website is full of information but if you have a very specific subject you are searching for and can't find what you want, there is always our Autism Helpline, open from 10am-4pm, Monday-Thursday and 9am-3pm on Fridays.
