National Post Diagnostic Support Service
A new National Post Diagnostic Support Service was launched on 1st December 2020.
This new service aims to support newly diagnosed people across Scotland to understand and embrace their identity as an autistic person. Funded by the Scottish Government, the service is delivered in partnership with national charities Scottish Autism, National Autistic Society Scotland, Autism Initiatives Scotland and Autistic People’s Organisations Autistic Mutual Aid Society Edinburgh (AMASE), Autism Rights Group Highland (ARGH), Triple A’s and the Scottish Women’s Autism Network (SWAN). This service will focus on ensuring that autistic children and adults, as well as their families, are empowered with the information and support that they need after a diagnosis, whilst also providing autism led peer support.
The service will be piloted for six months and you can find out how to access the support by visiting Different minds. One Scotland website.
