I saw this information about Spectrum Live on the National Autistic Society and thought it may help if you are facing diagnosis, maybe you are just going through the process or you are still waiting for an assessment.
If you go along to the NAS Facebook page and give it a like you can join in on a live discussion about diagnosis. It takes place Wednesday 13th March at 7pm. I think this is a great way to grab all the information you need and answer all those questions that are going around in your head.
They will be covering the different routes you can access for a diagnosis, what an assessment should look like and you can also join a campaign to help reduce the waiting time in which people have to wait for their autism diagnosis.
You will be able to submit your own questions too so I will leave you with a link to the National Autistic Society website with all the information about the event, how to access it and how to submit a question in advance.
Please think about taking part as even thinking about going for a diagnosis came seem a bit daunting, the wait can be frustrating so you may get some welcomed support from others here. They will be talking to autistic people and families on what it means to get a diagnosis so you will get information from people themselves in a similar situation to you or who can give you an insight to what will happen further into the process.
Just think of it as a little support group taking place in your own home, technology nowadays, it's amazing eh? So here is the link......
Thank you for taking the time to read my post today, please join me again tomorrow for some telly talk on Pass the Remote Sunday but for now I hope this helps and you all take care now.
Every Saturday I will be talking about Autism and will review any useful information which may have been highlighted at any support groups in the week.
