Hi, I am a new member. I am not a parent but I live with my partner and his autistic son (age 26). I am keen to join up with other carers or parents who live with adults with autism. I don't know any other parents or step parents of adults with autism and feel quite isolated.
Welcome to the Community!
I have a few suggestions which might help you to find the support that you need.
You might like to search our Autism Services Directory to see if there are any suitable support groups in your area. The Directory is here: http://www.autism.org.uk/directory.aspx.
Alternatively you could get in contact with your local NAS branch - they may have more information about what is available in your area. You can look for your local branch here: http://www.autism.org.uk/services/local.aspx
We also have a Parent to Parent telephone service if you would like to speak to someone - there's more information about the service here: http://www.autism.org.uk/services/community/family-support/parent-to-parent.aspx
