Covid 19 guidance for individuals who have a diagnosis of autism
This information is for parents/carers of children who have a diagnosis of autism and/or have been referred to the Umbrella Pathway or Complex Communication Team. As ever, it is important to balance your child’s medical needs with the essential purpose of social distancing.
Please see below the link to the official government’s Covid 19 guidance, that specifically relates to individuals who have a diagnosis of autism. We would advise that you contact your health professionals should you have any further questions.
