    Hi @Martin22,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you on board.

    In terms of support for dyslexia, The Dyslexia Association have a helpline which you can contact to ask for help and support. Their helpline is open Mondays to Fridays, 9:30am to 4:30pm. They can be contacted on 0115 924 6888 or via email: [email protected]

    With regards to autism and Asperger's, the National Autistic Society have lots of useful information on their website. They also have a helpline, which can be contacted on 0808 800 4104 from 10am to 4pm (Mondays to Thursdays) and 9am to 3pm (Fridays). It may also be worth contacting their Derby and District branch, too.

    As well as that, we have lots of help and support available on our community. You may find our Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) category of particular interest. You can also speak to our autism advisor in the Ask an ASD Advisor category.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, then please do get in touch!
