Warwickshire SENDIAS - Warwickshire Organisations Offering Support Groups, Clubs, Individual Support Bedworth and Coventry – Roots to Branches Autism Network https://directory.warwickshire.gov.uk/service.php?key=get-together-joining-families-living-with-autism One way, in which we offer our support is by running a monthly group where those diagnosed and their families can come to play and meet others in similar circumstances, we do not judge families or a child’s behaviour.
