Hi Vicky, I have used the family and wellbeing centre on Montgomery rd, cregagh. They are called sensations learning support. They have lots of classes and playgroups, speech therapy, carry out private asd diagnosis etc. Check their fb page. Also there is an amazing asd support group on fb that's for the whole of ni and it's so beneficial for parents for advice and guidance and someone to talk to. Check out their page too. I found most of my support etc through Facebook. Autism ni and autism support network have monthly meetings in Belfast but not sure which area would suit you. If you google them you will see more info. If you have any queries give me a shout. I'm based in Lisburn. Fiona

Thank you both. I will look into these. I'm finding it hard to even know where to turn. If I'm honest, I had never been exposed to autism before. The school are brilliant at the moment though, they have definately helped us.

Hi Vicki, I was also going to mention Joanne at Building Buddies. Joanne has been working with my little boy for about 4 years now ... she is fabulous. It can be very daunting and it is hard to find support.. very little available ..but if I'm honest most of the support, help and advice I have ever had has been through other parents.. your not alone always plenty parents out there to help and listen.. Im also Lisburn area .. if u ever want to get in touch have a chat x
