Welcome to Southampton Autism Support Service.
We are currently a self funded, Community interest Company, Southampton based autism support service. We provide support, guidance and advocacy for families with children/young people (4-18). We support people whom are diagnosed or with suspected Autism
We assist families with children/young people with a suspected/diagnosis of autism. We offer support at any stage of the diagnostic process including post diagnosis. We are volunteers with both personal and professional experience.
We know from experience, that the beginning of this journey in particular can be very overwhelming and may feel isolating at times. Our hope is that we can reduce these feelings by offering a guiding hand through this process from one of our autism family support workers. Our goal is to help raise confidence and empower families by giving them the tools to help deal with the wonderful world of autism.
