Welcome to PACT for Autism’s Directory, this should provide you with links to National/Local services and Activities. They are listed below under different coloured headings to help you find what you are looking for.
We have Support and Information Officers at PACT, they will be happy to chat with you on our Helpline or by email to help signpost you in the right direction or just to listen.
If you would like to speak with someone face to face or get together with other Parents/Carers/Individual’s you can find the dates of our regular drop in Information and Support sessions here.
For Adult/Over 18 specific information/services please click here for our Adults Directory page as you may find services and processes are different.
Begin by collecting together your own observations and concerns together with reports from nursery/school or any other people involved. Then speak with your G.P, Health visitor, Speech Therapist or other Health professional and ask them to refer your child or young person to the local Child Development Team. You can also call us at PACT on our helpline.
If your child is in education you do not need a diagnosis to get support for them, your school or nursery should be working with you to record their strengths and needs and to provide support. Please scroll down to the Education section for further information.
