Are you facing challenges related to your autistic child or young person's education? Here at AWARE we offer a lot of support related to schooling issues. We have a standalone, member-only education discussion group on Facebook where you can post any questions you have for other members plus our knowledgeable staff to answer. If we or our members can't give you any pointers, we can usually signpost you to an external service. We also have a wealth of Zoom session recordings related to education in the member-only section of our website plus live Zoom sessions you can attend. If you prefer reading, we also have education-related help guides, again just for our members. Join here if you are not already an AWARE member, or - if you are - log…
