Does my child need to have a diagnosis of autism for me to access a group?

Yes, they have to have a diagnosis and there is no exceptional circumstances. It is a requirement. 

Who will look after my child while I’m in the course?

You’ll need to find suitable child care while attending the course if it’s face to face as we can’t accommodate children attending. Parents/ carers can attend separate courses if this helps.
