    Hi @maxilang34
    There is a group on Facebook called 
    Autism in motion Liverpool. Depending where you live they seem to have lots of info and groups going on. If there not local to you they will have information they could share over messenger to help. 

    Autism Westmidlands have a charity phone number you can call there really helpful. 
    They can give advice on where to get support for EHC plans. 

    Hope this helps. 

    Let me know want to know anything

    One last thing the autism show is at the NEC Birmingham in June. They may do one closer to you but lots of info and really helpful.

    Hi @maxilang34

    Welcome to the community.  

    My name is Sara and I am a Parent Adviser for the Scope Navigate service.  Navigate is a brand new service that provides a six week programme of online and telephone support to parents who have a child going through diagnosis or have a child who has recently been diagnosed with a disability.  The aim is to provide parents with emotional and practical support that will help them build resilience as they start on their journey as a parent of a child with a disability or impairment. 

    I wondered if this may be of interest to you.  Please visit  or call 0808 801 0510

    Kind Regards
