Diagnosis of Autism Survey is a group of Hounslow-based parents/carers of children/young people (aged 0 to 25 years) with disabilities or special educational needs. The Forum meets monthly to discuss real issues that affect families such as health, education and employment. Professionals from organisations including the local authority are invited to share their current plans and to hear what parents have to say. It is also a place to share information parent to parent and to ask questions. There is regular attendance from the Short Breaks team.
