Autism Spectrum Support group for Parents, families & carers (ASSP) started on the 2nd May 2014 (wow 6 years ago now), by a small group of parents and individuals with Autism who after diagnosis realised they were almost left on there own.
Since 2014 the groups evolved and become what it is today. We support many families within Greater Manchester often by just giving a listening ear, and the opportunity to talk about your experiences, feelings, and just talking to people who are probably in very similar situations.
We have a wide variety of group attendees at our weekly meetings, including Adults with Autism themselves and parents who suspect their child has ASD. Sometimes just talking about your week either good or bad ‘just helps’ also hearing other members weeks events can help take your mind away from your own concerns. Its true talking helps!
