    Hi @CACM

    Welcome to the community!

    My name is Emma 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 (within 12 months). 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 https://www.scope.org.uk/family-services/navigate or call 0808 801 0510

    Best Wishes.

    Welcome to the community @CACM
    You might like to have a look at the National Autistic Society and the Fibromyalgia Association websites that give a lot of information and support. If you have any specific questions do let us know and I hope one of us can help :)
