The IAS provided support to F, a parent of an autistic daughter. We worked with F to provide strategies and resources to help her understand their daughter’s recent diagnosis and to provide support with other areas too. F was really struggling as there was no thorough follow up appointment after her daughter’s diagnosis.
The IAS worked on strategies to help F manage her daughter’s anxiety and sleep schedule. They also supported F in her daughter’s routine development. They also provided F with parent support. F is now engaging with a parent support service, is attending regular courses and is implementing IAS strategies and resources in her everyday life. These resources included: emotion rating scales, activity planners, communication cards and Autism information guides. The parent also now has the option to keep in touch with the IAS to continue to develop strategies and to access further support from additional services.
