Parent Support Groups

There are a number of support groups for parents across Oxfordshire – some are autism-specific and others are more general for parents with children with additional needs. For a list of parent support groups in Oxfordshire please see visit the Family Information Service Directory run by Oxfordshire County Council.

Make a referral 

We recommend all families refer to us soon after their child / young adult has received a diagnosis; or when they arrive in Oxfordshire. Our Referral Forms are for each person on the spectrum, so if there is more than one child on the spectrum we will need a form for each child. Our Referral Form may be completed by parent/carers or professionals – but we do need the form to be fully completed, ideally including an email address. Once we have received a Referral Form the parent will receive a welcome email and be added to our mailing list to receive regular email bulletins and all our news of training, activities, and events (unless you tell us you do not wish to receive this information). Parents may then attend our online Q&A sessions.
