Using care services

Your autism team should give you details about other support available. This may include information about services and managing your autism and about organisations that provide:

  • a chance to meet other people with autism and their parents or carers

  • details about courses about autism

  • advice on benefits and your rights

  • information about supporting you in school and at home

  • information about leisure activities.

Having autism should not prevent you receiving health and social care services if you need them. You have the same right to be cared for and supported as any other child or young person.

The services you use should be suitable for your needs so that you feel comfortable. For example, if you don't like being close to other people or you react badly to bright lighting, too much noise or waiting around, the service should take account of this.
