Advice needed please 3 year old son just diagnosed with autism.

Hi I'm new here and I would really appreciate some advice. My 3 year old son has just been diagnosed  with autism and I feel a bit lost I'm not sure what it means for him or where to go for advice. 

Also he has melt downs which seen to be getting worse I don't know if anyone has any advice on how I can help him with them. 

Thanks

  • Hi, I am going through the same! How are you coping so far? I’ve just been using research as way to get through it, but I’m finding it’s consuming me but when I take a break, it catches back up with me again!

    Planning a visit to the GP and to get in touch with the local authority this week and try and find some support groups. Does your son go to nursery?
